One Per Year is a collection of fifteen essays written between 2000 and 2014. The topics range from media theory to philosophy related to media theory to music reviews to art reviews to thoughts on... More > design. Like a time capsule, the book archives 15 years of media history from the point of view of the same person, an artist and theorist who went himself through an evolution, from his early interest in hacking and web design to his encounter with internet art and continental philosophy, to his participation in recent debates around glitch art and the New Aesthetic. Curt Cloninger is an artist, writer, and Assistant Professor of New Media at the University of North Carolina Asheville (US). His art undermines language as a system of meaning in order to reveal it as an embodied force in the world. His work has been featured in the New York Times and at festivals, galleries and museums from Korea to Brazil. He maintains lab404.com, playdamage.org, and deepyoung.org.< Less

“Beyond New Media Art” is the revised, updated version of a book first published in Italian with the title “Media, New Media, Postmedia” in 2010. Through the circulation of... More > excerpts, reviews and interviews, the book produced some debate outside of Italy, which persuaded the author to release, three years later, this English translation. “Beyond New Media Art” is an attempt to analyze the current positioning of so-called New Media Art in the wider field of contemporary arts, and to explore the historical, sociological and conceptual reasons for its marginal position and under-recognition in recent art history. On the other hand, this book is also an attempt to suggest new critical and curatorial strategies to turn this marginalization into a thing of the past, and to stress the topicality of art addressing the media and the issues of the information age. Domenico Quaranta is an art critic, teacher and curator. He regularly writes for Flash Art and Artpulse.< Less

More > group of people knew more about her life then even the person she was dating. In hindsight, these hundreds to thousands of private group based entries were an archive of her mistakes, permanently cached in servers for the rest of history. Technological Selection of Fate is a fragile, glitchy archive of part of this diary; a fragmentary, repetitive, arbitrary but surprisingly touching and emotional personal memory; a stream of consciousness delivering bits and pieces of a human life that has been turned into words with a few readers in mind. Addie Wagenknecht is an American artist based in Austria, whose work explores the tension between intimacy and technology, blending conceptual work with traditional forms of hacking and sculpture. Wagenknecht’s work employs a peculiar mix of hacking and visual aesthetics drenched by conceptualism.< Less
