Now the 4th volume is published, Traces of the Avant-garde: Theatrum machinarum, focusing on the origins of the machine paradigm and its cultural establishment in the 17th century from the perspective of the avant-garde obsession with machinery. The aesthetic, epistemological and political factors established with this paradigm are analysed from the perspective of the artistic and artful questioning of the mechanical in the 20th and 21st centuries.
