Abstract:

  • While creating and mediating human relations, electronic media also create new kinds of spaces and reevaluate/resignify old spaces. Because media initiate changes in the structural relationship between public and private, they are considered to be dangerous by many. What seems to be the issue is not the question of content, but rather that video makes genuinely private viewing possible. Electronic artworks are still presented in museums or exhibition spaces which reflect nineteenth century ideas of public space. It is rather curious that these changes have not had more effect on the presentation practices in electronic art.
