Abstract

The field of new media art needs a new paradigm to articulate its critical potency as it outgrows the frames of artistic criticism formed around the production of tangible forms, events, concepts and relations, and moves into methodological and technical areas akin to science, technology and political activism. Not by chance, an art that has untapped critical capacity emerges at a time when scholarship, faced with issues of vastly distributed, large-scale and complex natures, needs a new form of cultural response to push it into new forms of organisation. Distributed Critique is the name of an approach to collaboratively analyse new media art’s relationship to the non-art world. It is inspired by some specific “problem artworks” I encountered through The New Networked Normal’s Freeport online platform (2018), which also manifested as exhibitions in Berlin and Salford, where I advised on the discourse programme.[1]
