Innovation in digital art and culture

30th june – 30th july 2009

This summer course is conceived to study the ongoing changes and transformations in contemporary art and cultural production under the influence of information and communication technologies, from an interdisciplinary context and in tune with the wider debates on an international scale in the fields of arts, humanities, communication and social sciences.

The programme will attempt to provide theoretical, practical and methodological tools to contribute to the processes of innovation in the fields of art, communication and culture, in connection with present-day trends but from a contrasted historical perspective.

It will be based on three complementary and interrelated approaches: first, a historical and theoretical overview of new art and digital culture practices; secondly, with a more theoretical-practical leaning towards the new processes of production and dissemination of those practices; and finally, a more structural approach to the political economy of digital art and culture.

The programme is focussed on the professional sphere of Arts and Humanities, as well as advanced Audiovisual Communication. However, it also connects with the contexts of Creative Industries and Cultural Management.Introducción
