About Media Art Interaction, the authors’s aim was both to do justice to historical relevance and also to the bandwidth of artistic presence and with the media — a field of tension between TV, film, visual and performing arts. The focus on aspects of hybrid forms, interventions and interference include selected references to parallel contexts like experimental film, sound installations or the media strategies of political activists.
Reviewing these decades, recurring motifs and utopias, disagreements and antitheses become obvious. From action and intermedia art of the EN to the interactivity and Internet euphoria of the 90s, from the autonomous video utopias to the breakneck pace of the industrial commercialization.
