Digicult involves the active participation of a growing international Network of more than 50 selected professionals and academics, such as critics, journalists, curators, artists, theorists, practioners and educators, with a track record of research and pioneering practice in the fields of contemporary new media arts, design, architecture, theory and other relevant fields.
The Network of authors is mainly involved in writing contents for the web portal and the magazine/journal. The idea of Networking have been increasing from last years, including feedbacks and inputs from/to the main international digital art and culture Mailing Lists, but also professional activities and business through the use of Social Network accounts, and lastly a deeper presence on some Academic Online Archives, Libreries and Google Scholar engines.
The Network of authors, is responsable for the articles, interviews, reports, essays written for the e-magazine Digimag, that focuses on all topics related to the world of digital art and culture, emphasising the diverse existing realities and their synergies. It provides readers with in-depth comprehensive accounts of the latest advancements in the international digital art scene and culture.
Topics and subjects range from Internet art to hacktivism, from art-science relation to video art and experimental cinema, from audiovisuals to electronic music, from performing arts to design and architecture, from software art to the impact of new media on contemporary society. One of the strengths of Digimag is that it expands editorial and content potential, through exploiting Internet potentialities, by developing its Network and the relevant activities over the years in a variety of original and substantial ways.
The growing recognition of the significance of Digicult’s, and its magazine Digimag, contribution is reflected in its inclusion in major international academic Archives, Networks and Institutions, including MIT WorldCat, Schweizerisches Institut für Kunstwissenschaft SIK-ISEA, Zürich, Switzerland and Rhizome.
Digicult can relate to an audience of international new media art professionals, through in-depth contacts and relations within some international referential mailing lists (Rhizome, Spectre, Syndicate, aha, Sagasnet, NetBehaviour, Nettime) with which Digicult put into action a mutual exchance process of news, informations and visibility.
Digicult has finally developed a series of online services according to the Web 2.0 dynamics, just like Feed Rss for the magazine news and articles, like the Tag division of the portal contents, and the presence on the main social networks such as Delicious, Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, Flikr, Linkedln.
