Excerpt from the Exhibit Description: 

 “Marshall McLuhan was an academic and a historian of literature with a passion for slang word games and jokes whose audacious observations on media and technology made him one of the most famous public intellectuals of the 1960s and an icon of pop culture. And despite all the shock of the new, McLuhan’s approach remains as fresh and pertinent today as it was back then. Maybe now that the electronic environment has finally become second nature, we are able at last to encounter the importance of McLuhan’s practice. 

Feedback: Marshall McLuhan and the Arts is a recursive series of exhibitions and symposia with a focus on McLuhan’s radical, experimental publication practice. Originally exhibited at West den Haag, iterations of Feedback have been exhibited at the Canadian Embassy, Berlin; the transmediale Festival Berlin; and ZKM: Centre for Media and Art Karlsruhe.”
