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.

Liam C. Young's great book on cultural techniques of lists and listing is now out in the Recursions-series. 'Lists stretch across cultures and epochs, doing work both administrative and poetic, absorbing every conceivable thing - from virtues to vegetables, ingredients to illnesses - into their capacious form. In richly indexing the list's operation across time and space and media, Young demonstrates how this humble discursive structure has profoundly shaped our sense of what composes and orders our world, of what matters.' - Shannon Mattern, Associate Professor of Media Studies, The New School, New York
