<nettime> Your question


Final sentence from: Lev Manovich, Don't Call it Art: Ars Electronica 2003

"Today, when pretty much every artist and cultural producer is widely using
computers while also typically being motivated by many other themes and
discourses, is it in fact possible that "digital art" happens everywhere
else but not within the spaces of Ars Electronica festival?"

Good question. But likewise, today, when pretty much every theorist and
writer on digital culture is widely quoting the same texts, while typically
also being motivated by quite transparent, self-serving agendas, is it in
fact possible that "new media theory" happens everywhere else but not within
the claustrophobic spaces of events and writings thus headlined?
