About this book

This book reflects on the aftermath of shifts encountered in the maturing of digital culture in areas of critical theory and artistic practices, focusing on the awareness that contemporary subjectivity is one that dwells within both the virtual and the real.

Reviews

'The Performing Subject in the Space of Technology challenges perceived notions of 'virtual' and 'real' in a collection of fascinating essays. It explores the ubiquity of technology in both academia and professional practice, emphasising the experience of body/ technology encounters. The first half of the book brings a variety of philosophical approaches to technology, politics and ethics, while the latter half draws the richness of the practitioner's embodied perspective into the bag of analytical tools.' - Sita Popat, University of Leeds, UK
