Art Forum NAF:TMFC Post-Digital Aesthetics in Contemporary Art
Location: DECHAINEUX LECTURE THEATRE, THE TASMANIAN COLLEGE OF THE ARTS, HUNTER STREET, UNIVERSITY OF TASMANIA
DATE: Friday 31 May, 2013
Media experimentation in contemporary art has shifted towards the analogue. Small edition artist’s books and zines, 8/16mm film and analog photography are booming. In contrast to what the motto of ISEA2013 says, resistance to electronic arts is everything but futile. This talk will sketch why the post-digital and neo-analog are more than retro trends.
