Hi all,

I do not see Geert's statement, as a crisis. More of a change of 
circumstance offering us all various choices, as in what directions 
should we choose to go, what is considered appropriate in respect of our 
positions at present. To choose one direction, would surely limit the 
influence that we wish to have on culture generally. We no longer in 
exist mono-cultural societies, many may do mentally but how we relate to 
each other regarding uses of technology, patterns of communications 
influences what we do and how.

I feel that we have the opportunity to exploit all branches, collaborate 
with institutions, galleries, traditional media of distribution such as 
magazines and newspapers, fine art venues, with festivals and exhibitons 
- yet at the same time create a more focused identity that relates 
specifically to media reflecting upon its practice so to maintain a 
strong, critical enquiry challenging media art discipline, as it becomes 
more entwined in other forms of creative endevours.

The other thing which needs to be dealt with here, is to create stronger 
links betwen ourselves so that we do not get watered down. If we do 
this, I feel that media art and its various, related genres and ideas 
will remain strong and able to deal with the changes that are no doubt 
about to happen, as new audiences, artists, writers and institutions 
begin to undertake and move into the culture that many of us have been 
part of for a while now...

>> Geert Lovink
>> New Media Arts at the Crossroads
>> The emerging new media arts genre is in a crisis. Not that 'new 
>> media' are on their way out. What we're talking about here is a 
>> ‘luxury’ problem: in what direction to grow futher. After an initial 
>> period in which time and again the question “what is new media” was 
>> raised, we have now moved to a second phase, in which large parts of 
>> the population have become familiar with multimedia, cell phones and 
>> the Internet. However, new media arts still operates in a 
>> self-referential ghetto, dominated by techno-fetishism. In the 
>> meanwhile, the world at large has moved from utopian promises about 
>> virtual reality and cyberspace to a culture of massive use. Taking 
>> this 'democratization' of new technologies in mind, what are the 
>> implications of this shift for the 'electronic arts' branch? Should 
>> new media artists and their (few) institutions seek collaboration and 
>> integration with the museum and gallery art? Should new media remain 
>> a seperate category, with its own festivals and exhibitions, or be 
>> integrated into the broader 'contemporary arts'? Or should we rather 
>> further institutionalize the new media discipline?
>>
>> Geert Lovink (NL/AUS) is a media theorist and activist, Internet 
>> critic and author of Dark Fiber, Uncanny Networks and My First 
>> Recession. He worked on various media projects in Eastern Europe and 
>> India. He is a member of the Adilkno collective and co-founder of 
>> Internet projects such as The Digital City, Nettime, Fibreculture and 
>> Incommunicado. He is founder and director of the Institute of Network 
>> Cultures, professor at Interactive Media (Hogeschool van Amsterdam) 
>> and associate professor at the Media & Culture department, University 
>> of Amsterdam. In 2005-2006 he was a fellow at the Berlin Institute 
>> for Advanced Study.
