About issue Vol. 38, 2017, 3/4: Mediated Imaginations: Technologies Touching Upon Art
The latest issue of Kunstlicht sets out to investigate the intricate connections between technology and art. Drawing on current insights uncovered in the philosophy of technology, the following question – amongst others – is explored: What are the ways in which people relate to the world through technology, and which practices are consequently fostered? From this angle, artistic imagination and technology become increasingly inseparable entities; existing through, and realized within, one another. Regarding the design, use, and proliferation of technologies as a creative process, creation by artifice is shown not only to be foundational to works of art and that which they reflect, but, moreover, as being exemplified and even sublimated by artists. This entwinement of art and technology is what each of the articles centre upon, tackling the topic from an array of perspectives.
