Sabine Himmelsbach and Shusha Niederberger bring together contributions discussing the challenges of digital art and cultural mediation. In addition to a comprehensive insight into the mediation activities of HEK, the book offers theoretical, conceptual and historical insights into the field of research and sheds light on current developments from an international perspective.
Since the revelations of the American whistleblower Edward Snowden and the scandal surrounding the sharing of Facebook data, awareness of the power of media technologies has increased. Since its foundation in 2011, HEK has been a pioneer in the field of mediating media art and cultures.
