The Network aims to discuss the attributes of contemporary art created with new media technologies, to identify the key future research questions pertaining to this subject area for museums and galleries and to examine specific issues surrounding authenticity and performativity.
The Network will focus on a set of case-study artworks, addressing these with respect to each of the meeting topics. An interdisciplinary team of experts will share and extend their collective knowledge of New Media Art, situating it in relation to museum and gallery practice, whilst addressing pragmatic aspects such as the physical and digital architectures and the technological and human resources necessary to the ongoing display and maintenance of New Media Art.
