Network Art
Practices and Positions
Edited by: Tom Corby

Publisher:Routledge

Network Art brings an international group of leading theorists and
artists 
together to investigate how the internet, in the form of websites,
mailing 
lists, installations and performance, has been used by artists to develop

artwork.
Covering a period from the mid 1990s to the present day, this fascinating

text includes key texts by historians and theorists such as Charlie Gere,

Josephine Bosma, Tilman Buarmgartel and Sarah Cook, alongside
descriptions 
of important projects by Thomson and Craighead, Lisa Jevbratt and 
0100101110101101.org amongst many others.

Fully illustrated throughout, and including many pictures of artworks
never 
before seen in print, Network Art represents one of the first substantial

attempts to place major artist's writings on network art alongside those
of 
critics, curators and historians. In doing so it takes a unique approach,

offering the first comprehensive attempt to understand network art
practice, 
rooted in descriptions of the systems and the process required to create
it.
