CONTEMPORARY ART AND DIGITAL CULTURE. Melissa Gronlund. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. 230 pp. with 43 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2016-26138 ISBN 9781138936386 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 174648. Publisher's description: Contemporary Art and Digital Culture analyses the impact of the internet and digital technologies upon contemporary art in last fifteen years. Art production from the mid-2000s to the present has been, and continues to be, deeply inflected by social media and the rise of the internet as a mass medium, as well as by economic and political factors such as the financial crisis of 2008 and the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East. This book is the first to provide a thorough historicisation of the current interest in networks and digitality, and takes stock both of canonical twentieth-century art history and technological predecessors such as cybernetics and net.art. It shows how art addresses identity, circulation, privacy, and globalization newly in the digital age, and how feminism and gender binaries have been shifted by new conceptions of identity. It also looks at the art market and art scholarship to show how the internet's promises of democratization have been absorbed by the art world infrastructure. This book will be of interest to students, undergraduate and postgraduate, in contemporary art, especially those studying history of art and art practice and theory.
