Mediating Art Online
«Media Art Net» aims at mediating and contextualizing media art
online, a project edited by Rudolf Frieling and Dieter Daniels and
commissioned by ZKM (Center for Art and Media), Karlsruhe, and
Goethe-Institut, Munich. For the first time, a substantial amount of
basic data and documents related to media and art have not only been
gathered but also cross-referenced and thematically linked by the
curators and authors. An initial step is the «Survey of Media Art»
(in co-operation with Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig).
The project went online with the beta-version in January and will
continue with topics curated by Steve Dietz (Minneapolis, USA),
Claudia Giannetti (MECAD, Barcelona), Tjark Ihmels (FH Mainz),
Gregor Stemmrich (HfBK Dresden), Yvonne Volkart (HGKZ Zurich, CH).
