Transactional Arts – Interaction as Transaction

04.09. | 14:00 - 15:00


Daniela Alina Plewe

Interactive media, especially the internet, are often situated in an economic context where interactions are actually transactions and an exchange of some sort of value takes place. We focus on artists, who use or apply economic principles and coin those works as "transactional arts". We will observe that many accomplished new media works actually have transactional features. In the field of transactional arts, marketplaces can become an art form, buying and selling are means of self-expression, mesh-ups may resemble online businesses and most important, incentives become artistic material.
