Outline:

The next installment of the Salon or Seminar series of cultural debates will discuss media art.

The debate is a pre-event to the group exhibition GROUNDED, curated by artist and games theorist Axel Stockburger.

The debate will focus on the following questions:
- Does media art change the understanding of the term art itself?
- How is the relationship between the `creative industries` and art reconfigured by media and digital art?
- How does the location of new media and digital art affect contemporary aesthetics?
- Is the term ‘media art’ still relevant in 2006?

Panel:
JJ Charlesworth (art critic/writer),
Axel Stockburger (artist and games theorist),
Sue Thomas (author of Hello World: Travels in Virtuality)
Marina Vishmidt (writer, installation artist)
Chaired and organised by Cecilia Wee (Rational Rec, Resonance FM)
