Internet Art: The Onling Clash of Culture and Commerce
Library Shelf Location 31.STAL
Publication Date 2003
Description In its brief history Internet Art has moved from being the concern of a few brilliant amateurs to a position of prominence on the art scene. While much material art seen in conventional galleries feels disengaged with the world, caught up in weary variations of art-world concerns, Internet art is often humorous, socially aware and politically active. Accessible and jargon-free, this book explores the character of this new, dematerialised online art and the Inernet's transformation into an arena for consumerism. The author, Julain Stallabrass, suggests that Net art may have radical implications for the way in which we think about art's authorship and ownership and more fundamentally, our understanding of what is and what is not art. Julian Stallabrass is lecturer in Art History at the Courtauld Institute of Art, and is author of Gargantua: Manufactured Mass Culture (1996), High Art Lite: British Art in the 1990s (1999) and Paris Pictured (2002)
