The Zone of Conflict. Internet
Technological progress and cultural regress? (RSHU)
Data is a virtual commodity with a real value. Access to data, its
means of production and processing determine the extend of joining general
cultural production. Appearance of virtual models of relations in
contemporary society is inevitably followed by transformation of the real
world, both its image in general and it social, political and economic
framework. What contradictions appear within this process? In what way are
interests of those involved in this process formed and satisfied? What are
the most effective methods of vital problem decision by means of media
technologies? Is contemporary media-art able to productively perform its
critical function, or is it good for nothing but speculating on
fashionable radical ideas and conceptions?
