The CFront 2000 Book is in print!!!
On 13 June, you will be able to get your copy of the CFront
2000 Book. Not a catalogue, not a simple presentation of the
CFront 2000 project, but a compilation of high-level texts,
both by participants of CFront 2000 and by other authors we
approached to get a fuller picture of media art and cultural
practices between East and West, rounding up the animated
discussions at CFront 2000 under the title "Crossing
Points: East-West _ Crossing Points between East and West
in the Context of the New Media Balkan Generation".
The CF00 Book _ Crossing Points East-West
Edited by Dimitrina Sevova & Alain Kessi
Published by the curatorial team of CFront 2000: Dimitrina
Emil Miraztchiev, Alain Kessi (assistant)
Sofia, June 2001
Published in English and Bulgarian language, the book presents
an up-to-date collection of essays, analyses, literary texts
and provocations, both to an international audience interested
in questions of East-West relations under the sign of new
communication technologies, and to local readers who wish
to acquaint themselves with the dynamic development of the
new media community.
The book fills a gap especially on the Bulgarian market,
where no more than three books have been published about contemporary
art, and none so far about media art and culture, but will
appeal also to the veterans of networking.
The book is published with the support of the Daniel Langlois
