Mission:

With Media-N’s mission in mind, this section publishes high-quality reviews and reports that provide readers with an up-to-date picture of global trends in new media art. 

For our readers, newly published books and current art exhibitions are important sites in which cutting-edge scholarship and emergent practices are first revealed. Beyond providing a glimpse of new discourse, we envisage reviewers evaluating how the author’s publication offers new theoretical insights and frameworks. We also encourage exhibition reviews. By bringing the interpretive tools of art criticism to bare on new media art, we hope to expand its understanding along with historicizing exhibitions considered seminal. With regards to reports, we continue to build on the success of the questionnaire and conference commentary format. These reports promote thoughtful and creative exchanges between theoreticians and practitioners on issues pertinent to conferences and symposia proceedings. Contributors entering into a dialogue with peers allow for the reader to gain a fuller picture of the new media landscape. These reports will also remain a vehicle to explore speculative research practices, allowing the reader to identify new categories, evolutions and ruptures in new media, and changing technical vocabularies.
