Paris College of Art presents symposium addressing the impact of digital technology on the creation, distribution, and experience of art in 2020
In his 1935 essay, "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction,” philosopher and literary critic Walter Benjamin considered the technological inventions of the time that were shifting the way humanity was experiencing the world, such as through film and photography. He argued that mechanical reproduction not only changed how art was created and distributed but changed the definition of art itself. Now, in 2020, with social media, 3D modeling, 3D printers, laser cutters, virtual reality, high-resolution cameras, and design software, how is art impacted by technology? The symposium “Art in the Age of Digital Reproduction” will consider how technology is impacting the creation, distribution, and experience of art today.
