Notes Introduction by Brian Holmes.
Issued in slipcase.
"Since its formation in 1987, Critical Art Ensemble has set out to explore the intersections between art, critical theory, technology and political activism. The award-winning group of tactical media practitioners has exhibited and performed in a variety of venues internationally, from the street to the museum to the internet. 'Disturbances' is the first book to assess the group's 25-year history, examining the environmental, political and bio-technological themes of their various initiatives. In the publication, each project is presented by the group itself, from their early live multimedia productions; to their development of models of electronic civil disobedience, digital resistance, and contestational biology and ecology; to their most recent tactical media projects. 'Disturbances' is a landmark handbook for activists in art, theory, science and politics."--Publisher's web page.
