A 'round robin conversation about the canonisation of contemporary and new media art with participation of artists, curators and producers including Mark Daniels (New Media Scotland), Charlotte Frost (City University Hong Kong), Axel Lapp (MEWO Kunsthalle) and Addie Wagenknecht (artist, Bitforms Gallery). The publication considers the history of art in relation to contemporary practices and includes chapters about video art, street art, performance art and new media art, alongside chapters concerned with the commodification of art, the art market, the museum, feminist practices, and chapters on specific artists works such as Ai Weiwei, Jean Michel Basquiat and El Anatsui. Contributors include Felix Vogel, Martha Buskirk, Helena Reckitt, and Wendy Teo. The round-robin builds on research conducted online into the commissioning and preservation of new media and digital art in different situations - from festival to museum exhibition.
