netwoked-cultures[May 2008] Book “Networked Cultures: Parallel Architectures and the Politics of Space”, result of a research project by Peter Mörtenböck and Helge Mooshammer, is published. The book includes essay by/about STEALTH, and interestingly enough starts with a story about the Lost Highway Expedition we co-organised in 2006.

The editors claim that networks have become the most powerful figure to describe our conception of the world: networks dominate the prevailing structures of cultural, economic and military power. Departing from sites of geopolitical conflict and social confrontation, the Networked Cultures project, an international platform of artists, architects, curators and theorists, aims to reconsider cultural transformations by examining the potentials and effects of networked spatial practices.

The book includes essays by Adrian Blackwell, Marina Grzinic, Irit Rogoff and AbdouMaliq Simone, and conversations with Özge Açıkkol, Azra Aksamija, Ayreen Anastas, Ricardo Basbaum, Jochen Becker, Matei Bejenaru, Ursula Biemann, Sylvie Blocher, Stefano Boeri, Katherine Carl, Sarah Carrington, Branka Curcic, François Daune, Igor Dobricic, Ana Dzokic, Joan Escofet, Jesko Fezer, Asya Filippova, Rene Gabri, Iacopo Gallico, Sophie Hope, Natasa Ilic, Guven Incirlioglu, Katrin Klingan, Vasıf Kortun, Erden Kosova, Olga Lopoukhova, Margarethe Makovec, Marc Neelen, Philipp Oswalt, Kyong Park, Marta Paz, Constantin Petcou, Tadej Pogacar, Poka-Yio, Marjetica Potrc, Gerald Raunig, Oliver Ressler, Josep Saldaña, Marko Sancanin, Günes Savas, Florian Schneider, Despoina Sevasti, Pablo de Soto, Srdjan J.
