Leestip: Memory in motion: how art and heritage become meaningful
16 november 2016Tweet
Hoe wordt ons collectieve geheugen gevorm in het digitale tijdperk? In deze nieuw verschenen essaybundel wordt de 'technology of memory' vanuit verschillende invalshoeken besproken.

But the question of how new media changes that equation is very much up in the air: How, in the age of digital computing, instant updating, and interconnection in real time, is social memory created and enacted? This collection offers a set of essays that discuss the new technology of memory from a variety of perspectives that explicitly investigate their impact on the very concept of the social."
