New media in the contemporary art market:
Access, ownership and artificial scarcity / by Pau Waelder (2016)

New media in the contemporary art market: <br/>Access, ownership and artificial scarcity  / by Pau Waelder (2016) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) |

Since the early 2010s, the contemporary art market has been showing signs of a renewed interest in digital media. On the one hand, several online marketplaces have been launched with the support of investor groups that include leading contemporary art galleries. On the other hand, a growing number of startups have been developing forms of accessing and collecting art in a digital format by means of mobile apps, streaming services and digital frames. Most of these business initiatives have been launched in the past four to five years and are currently exploring models of selling art which have yet to prove their profitability in the context of a market that is changing rapidly, but at the same time holding on to established structures and hierarchies. 

The traditional mechanisms of selling and collecting art that have shaped the art market for more than a hundred years are being challenged by the transformations introduced by digital technologies. The Internet facilitates access to a vast amount of data, as well as the possibility of reaching audiences regardless of their geographical location, while everyday devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops provide new contexts in which to experience art, away from the white walls of the museum or the gallery. ...

The science behind the art of Jeff Koons // by Nina Stoller-Lindsey /// #artsci #mediaart

The science behind the art of Jeff Koons // by Nina Stoller-Lindsey /// #artsci #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) |

Today, H&M will release a special-edition leather handbag featuring the likeness of Jeff Koons’s Balloon Dog (Yellow) in some stores and on its website. To celebrate (and, really, further publicize) the occasion, Koons will decorate the six-story facade of the Swedish retailer’s Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York City with images of his iconic sculpture.


The most expensive living artist as of a November 2013 auction, Koons is routinely noted for his shrewd, and sometimes unusual, business practices. But the former Wall Street commodities broker also has a knack for science and technology.


In fact, his works are often so cutting edge that some of the world’s leading museums have found themselves ill-equipped to handle them. (Asked why the Guggenheim never went through with its 1996 plan for a major Koons exhibition, former director Lisa Dennison admitted to the New York Times that “finding the technology to match Jeff’s vision became impossible.”)

Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma opens survey of contemporary art

Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma opens survey of contemporary art | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) |
Hello World!, is a survey of contemporary art focusing on the global digital revolution and its impact on our culture and economy, as well as human identity and behaviour. The exhibition in Kiasma, Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki brings together 35 artists from 13 countries representing three generations, from the ‘60s to the ‘80s. The ARS17+ Online Art website at showcases a selection of new net art as part of the ARS17 exhibition at Kiasma.

Many of the artists featured in the exhibition are post-internet millennials, who are digital natives more or less from the moment they are born. For them, the physical and virtual worlds are inseparable components of the same merged reality. In their world, digital technology is not an end itself, but a tool for creating, sharing and experiencing.

Artistry Vs. Novelty: Digital Art Museum Director Wolf Lieser on Virtual Reality as Art

Artistry Vs. Novelty: Digital Art Museum Director Wolf Lieser on Virtual Reality as Art | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) |
The director of the Digital Art Museum in Berlin breaks down the promise and limitations of virtual reality in this interview with Artspace’s Will Fenstermaker.


In the Whitney Museum’s first biennial of its new Chelsea home, the most controversial work is one of new media: Jordan Wolfson’s Real Violence (2017) is experienced through virtual reality headsets. Via Oculus Rift, the viewer is forced out of the museum and onto a New York street, where the artist waits with a baseball bat. Before viewers have time to accustom themselves, Wolfson swings, repeatedly wailing the bat and stomping his foot into the face of an animatronic doll—rendered lifelike through post-processing—which spouts too-human blood. Back in the museum, metal handrails help deter viewers from looking away. All of this is overlaid, through headphones, with the recitation of a Hebrew prayer. ...
