It is sometimes hard to believe that we are where we are now. A few decades ago, art curators were arguing whether video should be considered in an art medium and hesitated to show Nam June Paik's work in an art space. This reading list offers you a selection of books that, in one way or another, attempt to explain why technology plays such a big role when it comes to arts and culture.
Every week, Museeum contributors and editors travel the world to find unique art spaces that offer the most compelling public programs and exhibition experiences. This fall, Museeum partnered with the Biennale of Moving Image MOVIMENTA which takes place in Nice, France. It is indeed a great opportunity for us to explore this town and its museums.
The Festival's compelling art and academic programme inspired us to put together a selection of books that hopefully inspire those looking for thought-provoking reads about the arts in the digital era.
Enjoy our book selection including essays by the major 20th century philosophers and artists like Gilles Deleuze, Guy Debora, Nam June Paik, Chris Marker, Harun Farocki and more (you can see the artworks by Marker and Farocki at the festival - don't miss this chance!). Must-have!
