MARIE MEIXNEROVÁ, audio visual theoretician, curator, artist (PAF, UPOL): ‘PAF Edition: #mm Net Art’
Net art is viewed as an important and professionally examined area of contemporary visual art. Throughout its more than twenty-five year long history, it has changed as well as the ways of theoretical, critical and author thinking about it. Therefore, the answer to question ‘What is Net Art?’ cannot be unambiguous. The first overall collection of texts on net art describes the development of this art form from its beginnings up to the current Post-Internet trends and changes of theoretical thinking about it. The publication was presented in the context of editorial series PAF Edition and the continuity with Festival of Film Animation Olomouc activities.
