Rob Myers reviews 'Post-Digital Print' by Alessandro Ludovico


Rob Myers reviews Alessandro Ludovico's book 'Post-Digital Print– The Mutation of Publishing Since 1894'.
http://www.furtherfield.org/features/reviews/post-digital-print

It tracks the many deaths of print media and its long history of surviving against the odds in order to show how it can survive the Internet as a vital part of our shared culture.

Independent bookshops, large bookshop chains, newspapers and magazines are having to compete with Internet-based publishing or be wiped out. It's not clear whether physical print publishing believes it can survive this encounter with the digital. Ludovico explains how it can and why it is important that it should.

Alessandro Ludovico is the editor and publisher of Neural, a magazine for critical digital culture and media arts.

By Luke Munn.

In the wake of the Arab spring and the financial crisis and in the midst of the massive abuse of privacy unveiled in the NSA/Prism revelations, agency would seem to be all the more urgent. While problematic as pure activism, art is inherently political, opening into the wider plane of aesthetics which define “a cartography of the visible, the intelligible and also of the possible.” Are there art practices which provide models for this moment, which engender critical agency within their viewing publics, encouraging a deeper engagement with technology?

Video interview with Shu Lea Cheang & Mark Amerika


Video interview with Shu Lea Cheang & Mark Amerika

Disrupting data, the ‘new normal’ and gentrifying the internet.

Video by Jean Kay.

Working with the internet since the 90s, Shu Lea Cheang and Mark Amerika have seen the world wide web develop, shift and change into what it is today. As so-called ‘net natives’ Cheang and Amerika share many of the concerns of artists evolving with the WWW, from its emergence in the late-80s/early 90s, to the dot-com bubble, its burst, and now Web 2.0.
