Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

As for having the time to work out such artistic ideas, "[a] superior time policy means to fight for the upper hand in time consumption and time use. It appears that one must be ready to face certain loss, both in the sense of self-consuming (Guy Debord) and of self-squandering (Georges Bataille)." Net_condition: Art and Global Media documents projects by over 100 artists, scholars, theorists (including Siegfried Zielinski, quoted above) and activists who were part of a simultaneous exhibition in Germany, Austria, Spain and Japan. The book was co-edited: Peter Weibel is chairman and CEO of ZKM/Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany (one of the exhibition's forums); independent curator Timothy Druckrey is editor of MIT's Electronic Culture: History, Theory and Practice series, of which this is the second volume. Its radically graphical layout, full of color imagery and text, comes as close as book technology can to the real "Net condition." (Feb.)

From Library Journal

The second volume in Druckrey's "Electronic Culture: History, Theory and Practice" series, which is designed to examine the way modern media and its global reach influence social, political, and physical space, this book investigates the worldwide "net culture" in artistic, social, political, and economic terms. This large paperback publication, crammed with color illustrations on every page, was published in conjunction with an international art exhibition that took place simultaneously in Germany, Austria, Spain, and Japan. Edited by Weibel, CEO of ZKM/Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany, and Druckrey, an independent writer and curator, this exhibition catalog includes URLs to the artists' websites, which prove to be exceptionally interesting and fun. Of the same genre as Wired Magazine, this book is loud, flashy, colorful, and jumpy; adult material is included. Recommended for contemporary art collections. Jennifer L.S.
