<nettime-ann> The Work of Media Art in The Age of Digital Reproduction


The Work of Media Art in The Age of Digital Reproduction.

28th - 29th April
Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) 350 Sauchiehall St. Glasgow.

A two-day symposium surveying current projects concerned with
preserving the history of media art and initiatives aimed at
stimulating practices, networks, critical appreciation and knowledge
associated with electronic and digital media arts.

Day 1 will provide a 'guided tour' of video art through the early
exponents of analogue and film formats and re-examine their place
within the contemporary art gallery and museum. This will be
interspersed with artists' presentations that help explore the nature
and practice of the moving image and its current conditions within the
'visual arts "scene"'. The main drive will be to re-examine the critical
frameworks between current practice and its antecedents.

Day 2 will involve presentations by members of Mag.Net (Magazine
Network of Electronic Cultural Publishers), and will explore print and
electronic publications as a mean of supporting new practices and
networks around digital culture. Each contributor will present their
editorial positions, an overview of practice in their countries, as
well as present for pubic discussion some of the debates Mag.Net is
interested in - social and virtual networking, developing flexible
forms of translocal and transmedia exchange, and the new possibilities
available to artists and publishers, such as POD (Publishing on
