This month's Cybersalon is celebrating the past two decades of digital creativity in London and will look forward to the city's next
burst of artistic innovation.

New Media Art in the 1990s was not about a particular art form, but rather about exploring the emerging medium itself.
Some have called it techno-deterministic, others saw it as a rise of new digital aesthetics. What is now clear is that the best artworks
from this pioneering decade explored how the decentralised and open structure the Net encouraged the development of virtual and
real-life communities. It was this artistic avant-garde that would find its home in the rave scene, cybercafes and autonomist collectives.
In 2013, learning from this formative experience, both veterans and newcomers are producing many weird and wonderful media artworks for our
own times. Come to Cybersalon to discuss the past, present and future of new media art in this vibrant city. London's greatest contributions
to digital aesthetics are yet to come!

Speakers

Artist William Latham will show and speak about his early experimental work on digital sculptures, developing Mutator and its influence
on the aesthetics of the London club scene of the 1990s.

The Last Words of Dutch Schultz - and it's implication for today's Net innovators.

Sean Cubitt from Goldsmiths, University of London, will talk about how the interaction between electronic artists and their technologies
