The knowledge acquired in the pilot phase of Prater Digital was made available in Learnings #1. In Learnings #2, the reflection on one’s own work continues and the further development of Prater Digital in the years 2021/22 is evaluated.
Prater Digital is an attempt to create in a municipal gallery a long-term exploration of digital artistic practices as well as digital exhibition and mediation techniques.
The term “digital” is understood here as a cluster of different technologies that result from the connection of a computer (be it in the form of a desktop, smartphone, XR devices, etc.) to a worldwide network – the Internet. The art and cultural practices that are tied to these technologies promise new ways of producing and presenting art, but also of social interaction and reception of art. Prater Digital does not limit itself to a particular technology, a platform, or a scene. Rather, it explores cross-themes and processes that have a specific expression in these technologies or that arise directly from them, and which are furthermore of importance for culture and society.
