Art in the Digital Age - Daniel Birnbaum, Michelle Kuo
More than real, art in the digital world is released in occasion of the Verbier Art Summit 2018 (an event grouping innovative thinkers in a beautiful, intimate -almost hidden- site for meaningful dialogues.) Put together by Michelle Kuo, head of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Daniel Birnbaum, director of Moderna Museet, the book comprises a series of texts by acclaimed artists and theoriciens like Pamela Rosenkranz, Ed Atkins, Douglas Coupland and Olafur Eliasson. The texts take on a multidisciplinary approach to describe the encounters between the arts and new technologies, focusing on the impact of technology on artistic and curatorial practices, the potential threats that the former might impose on the field, and how, increasingly, the so called virtual reality is manipulating what coming together means.
