Praxis-Pool (German)

The January edition of dichtung-digital presents a new section. Besides "Reviews", "Theory" and "Miscellaneous" there is also the "Praxis-Pool", which focusses on digital aesthetics with respect to research and teaching. Here we provide contributions, interviews, links and book references as well as a survey of seminars and research projects. This serves as a forum for exchanging information, experiences and contact addresses for those scholars and teachers interested in these issues.

The Praxis-Pool consists of five sections. The following contributions are now available:
