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.

Paul Hertz 23.08.2016 This documentary video on #glitch and its precursors might interest researchers. It is centered on Chicago (#Chicago) and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, but has some substantial information and ideas (and yes, I'm biased): https://vimeo.com/179653115

Thomas Philipp 21.08.2016 Mamma Mia! That's what artists look like after taking the booze card at the Flusser game :-)
Here is a first look at MYTHOS VON THEUTH, a game that is currently under development by the Austrian based art group qujOchÖ. It is a playful-performative confrontation with cultural and media theories of the last centuries and offers a ludological reflection of theories from Platon to Gotthold Ephraim Lessing to Friedrich Nietzsche to Marshall McLuhan and Laura Mulvey. The 12 stations in form of a classical board game are undermined in manifold ways by using medial devices and channels.
MYTHOS VON THEUTH will be published in 2017 in an open design version (free copy) and in a limited handmade extended version.
