Abstract:

  • Panel: New Media Art Education in Central and Eastern Europe in the Last Two Decades: experiments and transition

    Cen­tral East­ern Eu­rope in last two decades goes through very dy­namic changes. They can be de­scribed as a chain of de­pen­den­cies in which po­lit­i­cal sta­tus shapes eco­nom­i­cal sit­u­a­tion and eco­nom­i­cal con­di­tion de­ter­mines ac­cess to new tech­nolo­gies which after all in­flu­ences tech­no­log­i­cally based art. This fact causes dif­fi­cul­ties in defin­ing new media art and leaves many ques­tions about local speci­ficity of dig­i­tal works. “Mi­grat­ing mean­ing. Un­der­stand­ing new media art in Cen­tral East­ern Eu­rope” tries to state what new media art is and what dis­ci­plines does it cover in the con­text of sub­jec­tive opin­ions of new media artists and the­o­rists from Cen­tral East Eu­ro­pean coun­tries.
