Bibliographic information


'Besides the Screen brings together a new generation of media scholars with a shared purpose: to excavate the practices that frame the moving image as it undergoes its most profound transition since the invention of television. From viral marketing to video-on-demand, from arthouse to primetime TV, from Q&A sessions to VJing, and from Croatia to Taiwan distributing, promoting and caring for audiovisual culture, as archive and as live event and living culture are being made anew. They demand a new mode of critical thinking. This book is a powerful introduction to a new way of thinking the new media landscape.' - Sean Cubitt, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK
