Gateshead: B. Read, 2002

This seminar addresses the issue of developments in new media technologies and their impact on contemporary visual culture.

A history of the Internet and its economic, corporate, social and political roles is outlined. Julian Stallabrass then applies it in his analysis of institutional transformations in the art world. Politics of reception of the work of art are probed in relation to the changing roles of the artist and the curator in dealing with an extremely diversified audience types in the world wide web.

The issue of the changing role of the curator as artist is addressed. Contemporary curatorial practice is constantly shifting and is yet to be defined, classified and institutionalised.
