«Media Art Net» aims at mediating and contextualizing media art
online, a project edited by Rudolf Frieling and Dieter Daniels and
commissioned by Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, and
Goethe-Institut, Munich, with financial support from the German
Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF). For the first time, basic
data and documents related to media and art have not only been
gathered but also cross-referenced and thematically linked by the
curators and authors. An initial step is the «Survey of Media Art»
(in co-operation with Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig). All texts by
the authors will also be available in book form (Springer Vienna New
York Publishers).
The project will be launched online on January 23 in the context of a
public symposium entitled «Media Art Net Lectures» which will deal
with topics of «Mapping» in the digital space and in Berlin at the
festival transmediale on February 1. (see below)
