The ‘Digital Cultures’ research group seeks to interrogate aesthetic and political practices that have emerged on digital platforms within the last decades in Europe, Latin America and elsewhere.

These have tended to collapse the borders of art and politics. Be it through online art, video art, Internet memes, games, hacking projects or the creation of new technologies, contemporary digital practitioners have equally presented themselves as artists, citizen journalists or grassroots ‘hacktivists’.

The research group will investigate these new cultural forms through a reading group and discussion with guest speakers.

The first meeting of Lent Term will be on Thursday 2 February, 17:00-18:30, in the Cripps Seminar Room DD48, Cripps Court, Queens’ College.

They will be reading Friedrich A. Kittler, ‘Computer Graphics: A Semi-Technical Introduction’, Grey Room 02 (Winter 2001), 30–45.
