ADA welcomes Scholars!

The Archive of Digital Art expands its field and includes scholars in its documentation. Scholars are invited to become members of the online community and set up their own ADA entry!

Scholars have the possibility to upload publications and text pdfs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant events and be represented in the Archive.

The community features also allow the active exchange of professional information with peers and the new “Light box” tool facilitates the examination and comparison of images for research and teaching.

To ensure a high academic standard 5 published articles and/or curated exhibitions are requisite for scholars to become members of the ADA community. Interested scholars may apply for an account here.

Soviet or Internet - Cyberneticists in Hell | Baruch Gottlieb reviews Benjamin Peters' How Not to Network a Nation: The Uneasy History of the Soviet Internet, The MITPress, 2016 - In Benjamin Peters’ “How not to Network a Nation” we learn that the USSR had the engineers with the technical knowhow and capacity to construct national computer networks of scale. Indeed, the Soviet military had such a network already in the 60s, but the question Peters wants to ask is why the USSR did not develop a ‘civilian’ computer network akin to the Internet we know and love today.

Call for Paper for a symposion in June 2017 at the University of Copenhagen in collaboration with the Centre for Transcultural Studies at Heidelberg University (hint: you can also do Audio Papers! 😜):
