Art History and New Media: What's up? Situation and Prospects
The Swiss Association of Art Historians (VKKS) is organizing this year's annual conference at HEK (House of Electronic Arts) in Basel.
This meeting, characterized by interdisciplinarity and cross-disciplinary reflection, will explore the confrontation of Art History with the development of "new media". The techniques and procedures that this term encompasses - from the electronic to the digital to the post-digital - present art history with both pragmatic and theoretical challenges. In order to cover this broad topic, different lines of connection will be considered.
