Launched by OCAT Shanghai, Amplifier – Media Art Issue by OCAT Shanghai is a Chinese-and-English bilingual e-journal with an academic focus on media art1. The e-journal will be published through the website and WeChat account (ocatshanghai) of OCAT Shanghai. Planned as a bi-yearly publication, each edition will probe into a particular subject in the field of media art, intending to carve out a “forum” for practitioners and researchers within the fields of media art and related disciplines to make their voices heard, exchange viewpoints and further their thinking. In the meantime, it also intends to offer alternative perspectives and tools for the public to get to know and involved in media art. The inaugural issue will feature “Media Art in Asia”. An open call will be launched to invite researchers from both China and abroad to submit their papers on this topic. The inaugural edition is scheduled to be published in 2021.
Since the establishment in 2012, OCAT Shanghai has always been focusing on media art and architectural design, and committed to imbuing new verve and contents into the fields via exhibitions, research, communication, education and publication. The e-journal Amplifier marks a new attempt OCAT Shanghai makes to further its exploration and broaden its vision in media art on the theoretical level.
We look forward to receiving submissions from young researchers who pay close attention to media art. In the meantime, we also seek for possible collaborations in terms of topic selection and archive sharing. You may contact us via our WeChat account or by email (email@example.com). Open call for submission will be launched on our WeChat account soon. Please stay tuned.
