<nettime-ann> Lecture series: About Public Actions and Aesthetic Journeys | by CONT3XT.NET

A lecture series with contributions by Karin Bruns, Marc Ries, and Ruth Horak

Digital images can be transferred from one computer to the other in real-time, they are available anytime and anywhere - they are interconnective. Photos the existence of which is not yet founded on zeroes and ones will be digitalized with the utmost probability. One click is enough to (re)produce digital photos, to change their form of organisation, to make them available to a large audience and last but not least to make them readable for machines... The lecture series "About Public Actions and Aesthetic Journeys - Photography and the Internet" deals with the ongoing discourse about the impact of the Internet on digital forms of photography.
