Book_30

Entry: Publisher
Focus: Actar



Video: ZX Spectrum Arkanoid (1986).
Actar is a publishing house for art, architecture, photography and design, but its contents are about architecturephotographyartdesign . There is a slight difference: material productions are not static; neither is the information surrounding them. In art there is architecture, in architecture there is photography, in photography there is design... There is something that extends over us and leads us to reconsider the whole world of visual production, be it formal or cultural: the generalised management of information dissolves any static relation among artistic productions, at the same time dissolving any relationship between producers and receivers. Advertising, videos, written or filmed narratives, photographs, audio or video recordings, artistic messages and an infinity of possible registers are all quantifiable in the form of bits of information that today anyone is capable of processing from their very own home. Actar is, therefore, a printed means of dissemination that makes up part of this informational and postindustrial context.
