THE NORWEGIAN MEDIA ART LIBRARY AT DIGITAL WILD – THE THIRD EDITION
During Digital Wild exhibition the library will be divided into three collections: i) Digital Wild, ii) PNEK publications, iii) Individual contributions.
i) The Norwegian Media Art Library at Meta. Morf 2020 celebrates the digital wild artworks documented within the collection.
ii) PNEK publications explore the printed material produced by PNEK – Production Network for Electronic Art, Norway. PNEK network has been active for 20 years and has an essential role in The Norwegian Media Art Library project. PNEK member nodes have altogether contributed with 90 publications – producing around 60% of all the material within the library. The published material includes many serial publications, such as exhibition and conference catalogs, individual books, and yearly reports. The many serial publications help to ensure an in-depth ongoing archival coverage of the field, not only exposing individual works and artists but also showing long-term developments and changing patterns of the art field over an extended period.
iii) Individual contributions at the library document the wide variety and stunning creativity in the field of media arts in Norway over the past three decades.
During the show, we welcome new donations of books, catalogs, magazines, and other relevant printed material. The contributions will be included in The Norwegian Media Art Library online archive and the next edition of the printed catalog.
