The Back Issue Catalogue

Mediamatic Magazine & Mediamatic Off-line

Established in 1985 as a meeting place for video artists and TV dissidents, Mediamatic Magazine has evolved into a sophisticated and beautiful quarterly on art and media and the changes being wrought by techno-culture, hypermedia and virtuality.

Mediamatic focuses on understanding what's going on with our culture rather than boring you with the latest corporate mergers or technological breakthroughs. It is a magazine for literate people.

Each issue has a theme, such as Storage Mania, Home, or Religion. Articles are commissioned in which playfulness and freedom of thought are employed to produce unexpected insights. Mediamatic fosters the uncommon rather than the common. Its raw material is the text of theory: analysis, polemics, experimental theory, speculations and sometimes pure fiction. Authors from Europe, Japan and North America examine the themes through the filter of Mediamatic's only assumption: New media are changing every facet of human endeavour more rapidly and more deeply than one can guess.

Since 1993 every issue of Mediamatic Magazine has had a cd-rom as a supplement. This way Mediamatic has published some now (in)famous cd-roms created by Gerald van der Kaap, JoDi, Doors of Perception and Florian Thalhofer. Many of the Mediamatic cd-roms have attracted international attention and have been given awards.
