Welchen Beitrag kann Kunst mittels Beteiligung durch »die Anderen« in einer vernetzten Realität leisten und was hat dies mit Wissen oder Nicht-Wissen zu tun? An der Schnittstelle von Kunsttheorie, Kulturwissenschaft, Medienwissenschaft und Technologiegeschichte untersucht Manuela Naveau das Wesen von partizipativer Kunst im Internet. Dabei führt sie in die Welt computergestützter Partizipationsmodelle ein und reflektiert Begrifflichkeiten wie Masse und Crowd, Publikum und »die Anderen«. Im Besonderen geht sie auf verschiedene Formen von unwissentlicher und unfreiwilliger Teilnahme ein und regt zu einer dringend notwendigen Diskussion um die Entwicklung wirksamer Gestaltungsoptionen in einer Zeit enorm schnell fortschreitender Digitalisierungs- und Transformierungsprozesse an. Mit einem Vorwort von Gerfried Stocker.

If participation has been an ideal in politics since ancient democracy, in art it became central only with the avant-gardes emerging from WWI and the Russian Revolution. Politics and aesthetics are still catching up with each other. In the 21st Century, since the revolutionary unrest of the 1960s, participation in art and architecture has lost its utopian glow and become the focus of a fierce debate: does 'participatory' art and architecture shape social reality, or is it shaped by it? Contemporary critics see in participation only technocratic control, while others embrace it as a viable politics in an era of global capitalism. This volume breaks the impasse by looking at how participants themselves exert power, rather than being victimized or liberated from it. From artists hijacking Google Earth to protesters setting up a museum of the revolution in Cairo, art, architecture, and daily life are explored in their participatory dimension.

Instead of smoothing over contemporary art's violent and iconoclastic dimensions, instead of sanitizing and making complex artworks docile in terms of archival possibilities, this book suggests we abandon our fantasy of mastery over representation and respond in kind to the archive-as-artwork, to "living" archives, and to reenactments of history with their seamless connections between fiction and non-fiction. Among the concepts examined are Vilem Flusser's techno-imagination, Lygia Clark's and Helio Oiticica's participatory aesthetics, and Paulo Bruscky's and Eduardo Kac's literal performances of the archive. They contribute to the erosion of the archive's former boundaries, stability, function, and meaning. Writing alongside the artists as much as about them, Osthoff examines the archive mise-en-abyme, as it grows increasingly recombinant and generative. Simone Osthoff received her Ph.D. from the European Graduate School and is Associate Professor of Critical Studies in the School of Visual Arts at Pennsylvania State University. An art critic and historian of contemporary art, her numerous essays, focusing on media art practices and issues of historiography, have been published internationally and translated into over eight languages.

Mit den digitalen Medien scheinen alte Utopien wahr zu werden. Das Publikum steigt auf zum Mitgestalter oder wird sogar zum Autor des Kunstwerks, die Intelligenz der Masse setzt sich durch, Bürgerreporter begründen eine ganz neue Form von kritischem Journalismus. Die Fundamentalkritiker der neuen Medien kontern: Hier tobt ein Jahrmarkt der Eitelkeiten, triumphiert die Banalität des Alltags, die Ästhetik des Mittelmaßes. Die Euphoriker übersehen, dass im Involviertsein bis zur Distanzlosigkeit die Kulturindustrie ihr Überleben sichert. Die Kulturkritiker ignorieren das basisdemokratische Potential der interaktiven Kunst und Web 2.0-Kultur. Das Buch untersucht die aktuellen Phänomene der digitalen Medien - Weblogs, Werbung, Identitätstourismus, Cybersex, Kontrolle - und stellt sich den Fragen der aktuellen Netz-Debatte: Wie kreativ ist der persönliche Webauftritt? Wie aktiv ist das Publikum interaktiver Kunst? Wie demokratisch ist Online-Kommunikation? Wie kosmopolitisch ist die Online-Nation?

Overcoming Dictatorships explores art produced in response to the collapse of political authoritarian systems in 1989, particularly those of the Soviet bloc. A case in point is the visual work and discussions of ten artists who have bean selected and commissioned by 'Overcoming Dictatorships', a 2006-09 project generously funded by the European Union (EU). It aims to create a dialogue on post-dictatorial experiences among participants from countries designated as 'East' and 'West' Europe. Their works represent attempts to overcome collective identity formations of the past (i.e. the Soviet bloc, National Socialism and Fascism), critically engage with the fear of new dictatorships (including consumerism, globalization and mass media) and question 'western' political and social-economic uniformities (including the EU). Hence Overcoming Dictatorships challenges compartmentalized thinking and thus attempts to overcome authoritarianism. It is not the intention to add another pillar to a proclaimed European cultural heritage, but rather to contribute to bridging the East and the West, exposing the concepts of East and West Europe as in transition, which, as dominant cultural reference points for the contemporary visual, may also be on the way out, being replaced by an endless variety of issues, themes and positions.
