The accelerating convergence of modern media has created a maelstrom in which hype and relevance are difficult to distinguish. Located in the eye of this maelstrom, Mediamatic's strong philosophical and historical roots allow it to offer you a perspective on and participation in this digital 'third culture', where art and technology merge.
Established in 1985 as a meeting place for video artists and TV dissidents, Mediamatic Magazine has evolved into today's sophisticated and beautiful quarterly on art and media and the changes being wrought by techno-culture, hypermedia and virtuality.
Mediamatic focuses on understanding what's going on with our culture rather than boring you with the latest corporate mergers or technological breakthroughs. It is a magazine for literate people.
Each issue has a theme, such as Storage Mania, Home, or Religion. Articles are commissioned in which playfullnes and freedom of thought are employed to produce unexpected insights. Mediamatic fosters the uncommon rather than the common. Its raw material is the text of theory: analysis, polemics, experimental theory, speculations and sometimes pure fiction. Authors from Europe, Japan and North America examine the themes through the filter of Mediamatic's only assumption: New media are changing every facet of human endeavour more rapidly and more deeply than one can guess.
Next to the World Wide Web publication on the Internet, Mediamatic Magazine is also published in print plus CD-ROM. This printed edition is available by subscription. For more information take a look at our subscriptions page.
