|'Information', an exhibition
at the Museum of Modern Art in 1970, claimed to be the first conceptual
mounted by a U.S. museum. The artist Hans Haacke posited this

a query, a response algorithm, and its visual feedback.
Would the fact that Governor Rockefeller has not denounced
President Nixon's Indochina policy be a reason for you not to vote
