new formats, new players, new solutions
12-14 Aug 2014 Paris (France)



Recent years have seen an increase in experimental electronic publishing concerning the visual arts.

Art publishers are not simply reproducing traditional print publications electronically; they are also creating remarkable works with unique digital functionalities. Artists, arts organizations, and publishers worldwide use applications, e-book readers, and Web resources in order to produce original artworks and new art resources. These new publications—media-rich, collaborative, open-ended, or immersive—are extending the scope of art publishing.
