Net Culture in Spain

Presented by Karin Ohlenschläger

The publication »banquete_nodes and networks« guides us from neural micro worlds to the global dynamics of digital networking. It shows current positions in Spanish media art that deal with biological, social and techno-cultural networked systems. 27 essays analyse network structures and their functions in art, biology, communication, economy, ecology, neuroscience, sociology and urban planning. In the course of the publikation, new links are established that lead from Santiago Ramón y Cajal’s neuronal net theory in the late nineteenth century to Manuel Castell’s rise of the network society at the end of the twentieth.
