About this book

Postdigital Aesthetics is a contribution to questions raised by our newly computational everyday lives and the aesthetics which reflect both the postdigital nature of this age, but also critical perspectives of a post-internet world.

Reviews

'What is the digital? Or rather, what was it? And how has culture changed, now that the Internet got normal? In this capacious compendium of essays, some of the world's leading scholars discuss the art and culture of the present age, a time not so much 'of' the digital but forged in reaction to it. From the New Aesthetic and Post-Internet Art to more exotic trends in contemporary theory, this timely volume explores what it means to see, feel, and think after the advent of ubiquitous digitality.' Alexander R. Galloway, New York University, USA

"Computational thought and perspectives now permeate every aspect of our lives and profoundly influence our cultural and aesthetic perceptions, leading to claims of the emergence of a new aesthetic. However, the postdigital landscape is not the techno-utopian dream of Silicon Valley, but a vibrant, messy, conflicted and confusing arena of debate and uncertainty which challenges every aspect of our cultural formation, including our own humanity. This groundbreaking collection of essays is a thought-provoking guide to a new and contested intellectual territory.' Andrew Prescott, University of Glasgow, UK

'This book critically examines the way in which the digital is both embedded in, and has dramatically transformed, our sense of the social; structurally, aesthetically and individually. It uniquely, through a wonderful collection of essays, develops a much needed critical theoretical vocabulary that permits us to (re)evaluate what a postdigital aesthetics might look like. Thoroughly recommended.' Michael Bull, University of Sussex, UK
