           BEYOND ART? DIGITAL CULTURE IN THE 21ST CENTURY
              Oxford Union, 21 April 1999, 10am-5pm
               http://info.ox.ac.uk/ctitext/beyond/

Are computers ruining or re-inventing the arts? Twelve experts in
literature, art, music, broadcasting, theatre, museums, and contemporary
culture will meet at the Oxford Union on Wednesday 21st April to decide.

Oxford University's Humanities Computing Unit is organising the fifth in
an annual series of events which have previously debated the place of
computers in teaching, literature, and the library. Taking place in the
world-famous Oxford Debating Chamber, this year's event, "Beyond Art?
Digital Culture in the Twenty-First Century", explores the inseparable
entwining of computers and culture.

Just how is the popularization and pervasive nature of digital technology
changing the creative process of the artist, the performer, the musician,
and the writer? What has been the effect of technology on the viewer, the
reader, or the critic? And what of those who seek to fund and preserve our
cultural heritage?

Twelve distinguished speakers will debate and discuss these questions and
give us their predictions for the development of the digital future.

Two open debates will allow the audience their vote on whether 
the digital world offers a better cultural experience than museums,
galleries, books, and theatres.

Fees: 40 pounds (standard); 10 pounds (Oxford University); 5 pounds
(student/unwaged); 100 pounds (commercial including exhibition space)
