(June 14/15  Kunsthalle Wien, Rhiz) Overview: Panels, Debates and Events  Conference Abstracts Over the last decade digitization has reached deep into our societies, invaded the archives, transformed production and distribution. The established divisions of labor are called into question, and deep challenges emerge to the theory and practices of many cultural domains. A diverse group of people – artists, researchers, critics, entrepreneurs and an engaged audience – will exchange experiences, debate ideas and reflect on essential challenges:
  • How can expanded access to digital networks benefit diverse cultural landscapes?
  • What opportunities are offered by the blurring of boundaries between artists and audiences?
  • What does it mean when cultural works are both finished works and material for new works?
