Today it has become increasingly difficult to find a person or an object without some kind of connection to the internet. No Internet, No Art is dedicated to exploring what this situation entails with respect to one cultural field in particular: art. This anthology forms both the culmination and a continuation of a series of public events titled Lunch Bytes – Thinking about Art and Digital Culture, held in Washington, D.C., which invited artists and experts from different fields to discuss their work in relation to this overarching theme.
By opening up the often narrowly-defined discursive field of “post-internet,” artistic practices are examined thematically within the larger context of digital culture. As such, this anthology offers valuable new contributions to the fields of art history, media studies, philosophy, curatorial studies, and design.
