ADA welcomes Scholars!

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.

Congratulations, Jeffrey Shaw and thank you very much Prof. Grau! Shaw, of course, is prominently featured in the new exhibition "New Gameplay" at Nam June Paik Art Centre in South Korea. We present Shaw's seminal piece "The Legible City" in a new context as a masterpiece and centerpiece, juxtaposing and analyzing videogames, media art and artworks by Nam June Paik himself. By the way: Mr. Paik's birthday is today – so congratulations to him, too! 🎈Happy Birthday!
