Luckily, because and as a consequence of that, some of us think it is also necessary keeping distance from this exposure, in order to think and reflect about our role in the world or media themselves, for example. This is the legacy we have received from the past, when Conceptual Art was an artistic expression where “the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work”, as stated by Sol LeWitt (1967). At the same time, that was also a way to meditate on and to communicate language, society and its complex layers. Paying homage to that essential cultural moment, this book is entitled Conceptual, aiming to collect pictures and graphic works circulating around this field. Without a doubt, in almost half a century things have changed significantly, especially for what concerns the media and the technology used, but the results are still very interesting.
