Coded Cultures: New Creative Practices out of Diversity (Edition Angewandte)

In this book detailed reviews and perspectives from international artists, theorists, researchers and curators are presented and put into context with different tendencies of art, science, design and technology.

Through the establishment of new creative cultures, enabled by digital media and global communication networks, new practices and ability profiles of artistic delineations and explorations are gaining new grounds. Furthermore, economic models are eager to create synergies with symbolic values of cultural and artistic programs to deal with the potentials of »creativity«.
