Die Medien der Kunst - Die Kunst der Medien. Künstlervortrag von Judith Barry

Date created
Judith Barry will discuss her work as a series of questions posed in relation to the ever-evolving technologies that have provoked the constellation media art/art of media.
How has new media changed artists’ relationship to producing work? Obviously, new media has produced new forms and ways of engaging, but beyond this, what can we say?
Art, which is media-based, is arguably the closest to mainstream media such as music videos, television commercials, mainstream film and video production, corporate design and packaging. Can artists function as cultural producers when they are a »studio of one«? What, if anything, is lost as art moves closer to popular culture? Can artists still claim to be in the avant-garde of image production? Do these kinds of distinctions even make sense now?
