Abstract:

  • The goal of this paper is twofold. First, it asks, can digital media be avant-garde (or neo, or post-avant-garde)? Second, it asks, why do we, practitioners, theorists and critics not only of new media but of all art practices, continue to value and aspire to be deserving of the title avant-garde?
