Oplysninger om arrangementet
Peter Bøgh Andersen Auditorium Finlandsgade 23, Nygaard-bygningen 8200 Aarhus N
Since the pioneering 'software art' movement of the 2000s, software has taken on a strategic role in media art. If we interpret it not just as a code running on a machine, but as a formalised process implemented through a series of actions, we can develop different strategies for curating media art, but also for performing it and using it as a crucial component for archiving its history. Through a series of case studies, these practises will be unfolded in relation to publishing to show how they can potentially contribute to the field.
