Future Heritage presents the
cultural heritage of the future and introduces works of artists experimenting and
operating with information and communication
Artists have always been among the first to
explore the potentials of new media and have used them as
means to express their ideas. Some of these media and
technologies - such as electronic information
networks e.g. the Internet - actually
have a military origin. But, by supporting the
process of accepting and discovering new forms of communication
and expression, artists have ultimately adapted these new
media as bridges to public consciousness.
The artistic exploration of multimedia and the
electronic domain has generated a shift in
contemporary arts toward a digital, web-based, and
interactive creation and distribution of art. Information itself has become a raw material of artistic production. In essence,
artists have turned into "informers". Future Heritage, therefore,
introduces artists who present the most important aspects, ideas
and artistic experiments in the digital domain.
The digital electronic cultures - so rich, diverse and vital - represent a
testimony of our time. A testimony that helps us to understand the
complexity of life and cultural identities.
Digital art of today is the cultural heritage of tomorrow.
