Promotional Information

An indispensable volume for understanding the massive shift in information technologies in our time -- from social media to surveillance, big data to biometrics, swiping to hacking -- and the ways in which the vast expansion of the internet has both shaped and been shaped by culture. Artists are revealed to be not mere users but active reprogrammers of a network more global and more tentacular in its reach than ever before. -- Michelle Kuo, Editor in Chief, Artforum International The return of the New Museum's storied and influential series of critical readers is a cause for celebration, and this is the perfect volume to initiate it. Timely, provocative, and oh-so-smart, Cornell and Halter's anthology helps us analyze and historicize a moment of artistic production even before it has become history. This is a book people will be turning to for a very long time. -- Branden W. Joseph, Frank Gallipoli Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art, Columbia University The best of internet art is less about digital objects than the digital environment itself -- less about colored pixels than calling our attention to the screens and interfaces through which we are perceiving and conducting our lives. Here is the first annotated collection on internet art that brings clarity to this work -- suitable for students, practitioners, and the rest of us. Finally, this field gets the collection it deserves. -- Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now and Program or Be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age
