New publication: MediaArtHistories :: Digital art has become a major contemporary art form, but it has yet to achieve acceptance from mainstream cultural institutions; it is rarely collected, and seldom included in the study of art history or other academic disciplines. In MediaArtHistories, leading scholars seek to change this. They take a wider view of media art, placing it against the backdrop of art history. Their essays demonstrate that today's media art cannot be understood by technological details alone; it cannot be understood without its history, and it must be understood in proximity to other disciplines--film, cultural and media studies, computer science, philosophy, and sciences dealing with images. With contributions by Andreas Broeckmann, Erkki Huhtamo, Ryszard W. Kluszczynski, Machiko Kusahara, W.J.T. Mitchell, Barbara Maria Stafford, and Peter Weibel.

Michael Kunze. Les Messieurs d'Avignon :: Michael Kunze's Les Messieurs d'Avignon are well-known great minds from the areas of art and philosophy at the end of 19th to the end of the 20th centuries. They are the »bad boys of modernity«, whom Kunze presents in over 60 pictures - from Friedrich Nietzsche to Michel Houellebecq. Common to them all is that they stand, each in his different way, strikingly aloof: although they cannot be imagined outside their time and place, they dodge or undermine the accepted idea of a strictly operating model of progress. This contradiction is the common theme of the presented collection - The exhibition runs until March 18th, 2007 ⁄⁄ more

MindFrames. Media Study at Buffalo 1973-1990 :: In the 1970s and 1980s, the Department of Media Study at the State University of New York at Buffalo became one of the places of teaching and mediating, in the area of Media Art, developing into what was perhaps to the most influential school for media in the twentieth century. Teaching there under the leadership of the founder Gerald O'Grady were the (meanwhile canonized) structuralist, avant-garde filmmakers Hollis Frampton, Tony Conrad, and Paul Sharits, documentary filmmaker James Blue, video artists Steina and Woody Vasulka, and Peter Weibel. The exhibition will offer the first comprehensive insight into this groundbreaking art of the 1970s and 1980s, which was so decisive for Media Art's further development and whose style remains influential today - The exhibition runs until March 25th, 2007 ⁄⁄ www.zkm.de/mindframes_e/

The exhibition draws on the ZKM_Collection and selected loans in presenting an historical outline of this radical change in the fine arts, music, design, and architecture - The exhibition runs until August 2007 ⁄⁄ more
