Overview

As social, locative, and mobile media render the intimate public and the public intimate, this volume interrogates how this phenomenon impacts art practice and politics. Contributors bring together the worlds of art and media culture to rethink their intersections in light of participatory social media.

The book also offers a set of theoretical frameworks and methodological paradigms for thinking about contemporary art practice more generally.
