You Are Here: Art After the Internet. Omar Kholeif (Ed.). Cornerhouse / Space.

You Are Here: Art After the Internet is the first major publication to critically explore both the effects and affects that the Internet has had on contemporary artistic practices.

Responding to an era that has increasingly chosen to dub itself as ‘post-internet’, this collective text traces a potted narrative exploring the relationship of the Internet to art practices from the early millennium to the present day.

The book positions itself as a provocation on the current state of cultural production, relying on first-person accounts from artists, writers and curators as the primary source material.

The book raises urgent questions about how we negotiate the formal, aesthetic and conceptual relationship of art and its effects after the ubiquitous rise of the Internet.

The activities of transmediale aim at fostering a critical understanding of contemporary culture and politics as saturated by media technologies. In the course of its 25 year history, the annual transmediale festival has turned into an essential event in the calendar of media art professionals, artists, activists and students from all over the world.

Matter Magazine #1. A Modern Journal For Men That Matter. Digital Good Times.

Matter is a new biannual publication that records the ways in which new and developing technology affects culture, lifestyle, fashion, and the arts.

Created by the studio behind the acclaimed arts and culture magazine Kilimanjaro, Matter shares the former’s curatorial approach to design and content. Designed to appeal to a consumer eager to tap into an ever-changing and increasingly sophisticated world, with particular regard to the twin disciplines of high-end design and culture, its inaugural issue is covered by the iconic trip-hop artist Tricky, who talks exclusively to Matter about music, imperfection, and reinvention.

Matter’s unique selling point is the fact that it is the first art and style publication to examine these subjects through the lens of modern technology; in doing so, it brings together the creative and the rational in a way which is rarely seen in the realms of printed matter.

First issue includes: Dieter Rams, Ole Scheeren, Matthew Collings, Pierre Huyghe & William Gibson. / Google’s Creative Director of Data Arts, Aaron Koblin, on digital art. / Iconic fashion designer Rick Owens presents an Anthology Of Colour. / Editor Jennifer Higgie on twenty years of Frieze magazine. / Art & The Automobile, featuring the American artists Richard Prince and Erwin Wurm. / Tate Exhibitions Curator Tanya Barson on the Lyon Biennale. / Celebrated conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner, shot by NY underground photographer Ari Marcopolous. / Photographer – and former director of Dior Homme – Hedi Slimane’s best images of women.
