Alessandro Ludovico - New Book Edition and Biennale Judge

Published: 12 May 2017
Post-Digital Print Korean Version

This month sees two significant successes for WSA Associate Professor, Dr Alessandro Ludovico. It sees the release of his book, 'Post-Digital Print' in a new Korean edition, and he has also been appointed as a member of the "Critics and Editors of Art Magazines Award" international jury at the 17th Media Art Biennale WRO 2017 in Wroclaw (Poland).

Post-Digital Print, subtitled 'The Mutation of Publishing since 1894' is Alessandro's signature work, built from his research into the changing nature of publishing as it moves from print to pixel. It addresses important questions faced by both the reader and the publisher:

'How will analog and digital coexist in the post-digital age of publishing? How will they transition, mix and cross over? [The book] covers, among others, artists' books and manifests, zines, net art and experimental publishing projects.'

Originally published in English, then translated into both Italian and French, the book is going from strength to strength with the Korean version (pictured left) being released this month. Details of this version can be found at http://mediabus.org/Post-Digital-Print and if you want to know more about the contents of the book, there is an excellent article at http://lab.cccb.org/ca/llibres-en-expansio-i-impressio-postdigital/.*

Additionally, Alessandro has been appointed as a member of the "Critics and Editors of Art Magazines Award" international jury at the 17th Media Art Biennale WRO 2017 in Wroclaw (Poland) which is taking place in the coming week. This builds on Alessandro's work as editor of Neural magazine for nearly 25 years. 

The Biennale is focusing on the relationship between the digital and the human and its interaction with the artist, asking questions such as:

'As participants of the data exchange in the social network while seeking makeshift alliances, do we pledge allegiance to communication procedures and accept shaky, precarious and temporary positions? (post-media?)'

and

'To what extent does contemporary art reflect/express/drifts apart from these processes: always between draft and action, concept and manifestation?'
