The parameters of how Art is seen, shared, discussed and archived have changed rapidly in the course of the last decade. In collaboration with Transmediale’s reSource network, a panel of Art critics and bloggers will explore the past, present and future of covering culture.

As virtual audiences online swell to provide an unprecedented girth of eyes, brick/mortar spaces and print publications are being reconfigured to keep relevant in Contemporary Art. Coverage by veteran critics with sway culminated over long careers gaining strongholds in traditional sources under echelons of editors, advertisers and media moguls is now juxtaposed with the unbridled words and power of the internet to disseminate content. Means of archiving an artwork or exhibit for prosperity has expanded from circulations of traditional news coverage, photographs, slides to files, video and global viral mediums.

Discourse about art has expended in form, function and voices. This panel will explore these realities and their implications. It will be followed by an open, earnest, face to face Q&A discussion between the critics, bloggers and the audience.
