dbo:abstract
  • Frank Popper, né le à Prague (alors en Autriche-Hongrie), est un théoricien de l'art, critique, commissaire d'exposition et enseignant de l'enseignement supérieur, de double nationalité française et britannique. Il a contribué aux définitions critiques de mouvement émergent à la fin des années soixante axées sur des effets visuels et dynamiques tel que l'art cinétique ou l'optical art. Il figure parmi les pionniers de la critique portant sur l'art électronique puis informatique, internautique, virtuel et high-tech. Son expérience comme enseignant à l'Université de Vincennes ainsi que ses nombreuses contributions critiques en France comme à l'étranger font de lui une figure notoire de la scène esthétique contemporaine.

  • Frank Popper (born April 17, 1918) is a historian of art and technology and Professor Emeritus of Aesthetics and the Science of Art at the University of Paris VIII. He has been decorated with the medal of the Légion d'honneur by the French Government. He is author of the books: Origins and Development of Kinetic Art, Art, Action, and Participation, Art of the Electronic Age and From Technological to Virtual Art. Popper documents the historical record of the relationship between technology and participatory forms of art, especially between the late 1960s and the early 1990s. Sharing his focus on art and technology are Jack Burnham (Beyond Modern Sculpture 1968) and Gene Youngblood (Expanded Cinema 1970). They show how art has become, in Frank Popper's terms, virtualized.
