Digital Dynamics in Nordic Contemporary Art

Research output: Book/ReportAnthologyCommunication

This book takes you through and beyond a map of Nordic artistic experiments, conceptual reconfigurations and new modes of artistic agency. Offering an in-depth exploration of art’s contingent evolution with technology and digital culture, this book goes far beyond familiar depictions of ‘Nordic aesthetics’ in art. It explores art’s role and inquiries in response to changing sociopolitical realities in the welfare state and in the wider world. First-hand perspectives of pioneering and pivotal artists form the basis of chapters penned by leading scholars and curators of Nordic art. Digital Dynamics in Nordic Contemporary Art recasts the Nordic art context in an expanding digital condition and reveals horizontal ways to write its histories.
