You Are Here: Art After the Internet
Edited by Omar Kholeif

Cornerhouse Books and SPACE are delighted to announce a new publication edited by Omar Kholeif, titled You Are Here: Art After the Internet. Part curatorial project, part artistic experiment and part collaborative thesis, You Are Here: Art After the Internet grew out of a yearlong residency with various actors including artists, writers and thinkers. The residency was held at the SPACE-run art centre The White Building, London's centre for art and technology, which in 2013 was curated under the leadership of SPACE's Head of Art & Technology, Omar Kholeif.

The publication will be launched at various sites in spring 2014 and will be available for sale internationally.

Book Overview
You Are Here: Art After the Internet is the first major publication to critically explore both the effects and affects that the Internet has had on contemporary artistic practices. Responding to an era that has increasingly chosen to dub itself as "post-internet," this collective text will trace a potted narrative exploring the relationship of the Internet to art practices from the early millennium to the present day. Developed through a yearlong residency, You Are Here: Art After the Internet posits itself as a provocation on the current state of cultural production, relying on first-person accounts from 'native' artists and writers as the primary source material. The book begs urgent questions about how we negotiate the formal, aesthetic and conceptual relationship of art and its effects after the ubiquitous rise of the Internet.
