Upcoming discussion

14 NOV – 31 DEC 2016

CRUMB invites you to join the next discussion, which will explore approaches for studying the single online artwork. How can we approach these cultural forms as dynamic entities of an on-going present? 

Having the benefit of some historical distance, we will focus on early online artworks (1994-2000). For a profound understanding of these artworks, we need to analyze their existence in various moments in time and find a way to describe how they evolve. From this perspective we will examine the question:
"Despite a work of net art’s many manifestations, is it possible to formulate a list of key elements, which need to be studied in detail, to get a better understanding of (the lives and afterlives of) pioneering online artworks?"

Invited respondents are:
Michael Connor (Rhizome, New York), Prof. Dr. Dieter Daniels (Academy of Visual Arts, Leipzig),  Dr. Annet Dekker (University of Amsterdam), Steve Dietz (Northern, Shu Lea Cheang (multi-media artist), John G. Hanhardt (University of Rochester, New York), Mark Hellar (Hellar Studios LLC), Dr. Jon Ippolito (University of Maine, Orono), Dr. Matthias Kampmann (KulturMediaTechnologie, Karlsruhe), Dr. Christiane Paul (Whitney Museum of American Art, New York), Richard Rinehart (Bucknell University, Lewisburg), Prof. Dr. Roberto Simanowski (City University of Hong Kong), Marleen Stikker (Waag Society, Amsterdam), Liza Swaving (National Museum of World Cultures, Leiden).
