­This issue of Flash Art, titled Intermedialità, examines the medium as a polysemous entity, taking up the concept as coined by Dick Higgins (Intermedia Chart, 1966) and reconsidering it in an essay by Patrizio Peterlini — a discourse that also reminds us how Flash Art has chronicled Fluxus, visual poetry, and concrete poetry since their birth.

The medium, which from the 1990s on was conceived as an expanded field that exists independently from subject matter, is now being reconceived in environmental and immersive ways by a generation of younger artists.

As we survey sixty years of artistic hybridizations between art, film, music, and club culture, we consider pioneering figures like Aldo Tambellini — the electromedia artist and theorist who pursued a career-long meditation on the color black — as well as Jonas Mekas and Friedrich Kittler.

Also in this issue: “Club Culture and Visual Arts in Italy: Piper Club in Turin,” Pink FloydHaris EpaminondaPablo Bronstein, Nicola Martini, Anthea Hamilton, Carola Bonfili.
