The symposium was organized by the Centre for Art and Media Technology (ZKM), Karlsruhe, Germany, and held from 23 - 24 January 2004 in the Centre's media theatre.
"Media Art Net" is a project for teaching and contextualizing media art on the Internet. The project seeks not only to collect basic data and documents relating to the media and the arts, but also to meaningfully interlink them, in this way placing them in a semantic context. A major area is devoted to an "Overview of Media Art". During the international symposium, philosophers, artists, scientists, scholars and critics discussed the themes "Media Art Net" and mapping data spaces. All the lectures were conducted in English.
|The "Media Art Net" project was initiated by Rudolf Frieling and Dieter Daniels for the Centre for Art and Media Technology (ZKM), Karlsruhe, the Goethe Institute, and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in collaboration with the Academy of Visual Arts (HGB), Leipzig.|
