Through the years I have interviewed all kinds of people. And yes, it is has been an absolute privilege to be part of a brilliant culture, where there are so many amazing and interesting minds. Some view this vibrant culture as media art or new media art as it has developed in parallel to the mainstream art world. However, out of this societal shift a whole new breed of art practitioners has founded a form of controlling the means of art production on their own terms. This leads us to questions about what values can we now interpret as contemporary art?

Well, without any doubt I personally view all of these artists, theorists, coders, hacktivists and tinkerers, as part of larger field of contemporary art practice. As someone who has been deeply entwined in the history of this expanding field; I know, just like many others, that the most interesting and critically engaged art happening out there, does not only contribute as merely a reflection of the world, but it also plays a vital role in changing its reality. This means something...
