ISBN 9783856168674


The radical and rapid change to society and culture brought about by digitisation and the Internet is historically unprecedented. This development has also brought forth a new art movement: media arts. This book traces the explosive development of media arts in Switzerland since the mid-1990s. It addresses the most significant artistic strategies, such as sound and video art, Internet art, hacking, mashup and remix, do-it-yourself, robotics and machine art, as well as purely conceptual approaches. Additionally, it investigates the role of promotors, festivals, universities, and art galleries and exhibition spaces in the growth and profusion of media arts in recent decades.
