Abstract:

  • How can the Internet be used as a resource of interdisciplinary exchange concerning topical discourses, projects and developments at the interface between media art and media technology? Netzspannung.org, a laboratory for media presentation, artistic production and intermedial research, elaborates tentative solutions to these questions. As an interface between art, technology, science and society, Netzspannung.org is an information pool for artists, designers, scientists and scholars. The Internet platform communicates diverse activities from the media-cultural scene and since 2001 has been building up a continually growing archive. Netzspannung.org documents topical developments and media art history in the context of theory, technology and research. This multimedia database can be explored with new knowledge discovery tools, which facilitate the handling of the information stored within it.
