Digicult is an “open publishing” project and a Network of authors fully open and directed towards the nationally and internationally promotion and dissemination of digital culture and electronic art. Digicult works to become a point of reference for a number of professionals working in new forms of art and communication through new technologies, thus giving them a project thanks to which to operate, grow and share experiences and knowledge through network and sharing.
Collaborating and writing for Digicult is easy, as our structure is always open and curious regarding new contaminations: our Editorial Staff welcomes interviews to artists and designers, event reports, critical essays, reviews that demonstrate a good theoretical/academic preparation on treated themes, excellent writing, analysis and critical reflection skills.
We feature contemporary works, projects, manifestos, exhibitions, events, festivals, conferences and all artistic practices that engage with new technologies, art, design, critical thinking and social change. The ideas and behaviours that arise in these ever expanding creative territories are most relevant when shared and explored – so our articles offer an extensive, critical, cultural overview – drawing on ideas from academic, artistic and technical practices in the context of our networked, dynamic and connected communities.
