Erasure

Erasure: The Spectre of Cultural Memory explores key issues around the increasing aesthetic and cultural erasure occurring in our society. It moves from the seminal act of the American Pop artist Robert Rauschenberg erasing a drawing by the painter Willem de Kooning in 1953, perhaps signalling that an echo or trace would be all that is valued in the future, to the impact that the new technologies – such as Twitter, Facebook, email, smartphones, snapchat and Instagram – are having on family, class, sex, time, speed and space.

This erasure is driven by new media technology, globalisation, and new structures of education, work, home and consumption. Erasure: The Spectre of Cultural Memory is the first book that brings together artists, curators, scholars and thinkers who are, in their respective contexts, at the forefront of these compelling questions.

Professor Brad Buckley is an artist, urbanist and Professor of Contemporary Art and Culture at Sydney College of the Arts, the University of Sydney. His work, which has been shown internationally for over twenty-five years, operates at the intersection of installation, theatre and performance, investigates questions of cultural control, democracy, freedom and social responsibility.  

Associate Professor John Conomos is an artist, critic and writer, and Associate Professor at Sydney College of the Arts, the University of Sydney. Conomos has extensively exhibited both locally and internationally across a variety of different media; video art, new media, photo-performance, installations and radiophonic art. He is a prolific contributor to art, film and media journals and a frequent keynote speaker and participant in conferences, fora and seminars.
