To celebrate the publication of Art and Electronic Media, the most comprehensive and authoritative survey of new media art, NIMk will host the international book-launch.

Art and Electronic Media (Phaidon, 2009) demonstrates the formidable history of artistic uses of electronic media. Over 200 artists and institutions from more than thirty countries are represented. It enables the rich genealogy of art and electronic media to be seen – literally and figuratively – as central to the histories of art and visual culture.

Praise for Art and Electronic Media:
• “It is a superb work of scholarship, marked by clarity, subtlety, and comprehensive vision. Art and Electronic Media does us all a great service. More than any other publication that I know of, it will bring our field of practice into the mainstream of art.” - Roy Ascott
• “It’s the best book of its kind” – Casey Reas
• “This book will be quoted for decades to come” – Eduardo Kac
