Format: Paperback
I never saw this exhibition at the ZKM but many of the pieces are in the permanent collection and I was there not long after so have seen several of the works. The publication is first rate as most of the ZKM / MIT Press collaborations are (another noteworthy one is the publication for CTRL[Space]) and as with many of these can not be seen as merely a catalogue of the exhibition. It is a reader for what could be loosely called cinematic arts where cinematic forms are pushed beyond limitations of screen (many of the works are installation works), beyond limitations of form (many are interactive, adaptive, generative etc.) and attempt to form ideas of where 'cinema' might be going.

Who is this for? Primarily anyone researching/working/practicing within the field of new media and has an interest in the moving image. If you know and like any of the following publications:

New Screen Media: Cinema / Art / Narrative
The Language of New Media (Leonardo)
Soft Cinema: Navigating the Database
Remediation: Understanding New Media

Then you'd definetly be interested in this. If your a straight film maker, it's probably not for you.

Sadly, sadly, sadly out of print and desperately needing a second edition, I have many students who refer to this publication and the works therein at undergraduate and postgraduate level and simply can not source second-hand copies at now £200 - come on MIT print another run!!!
