The Media Art History national conference committee of Austrialia would like to invite you to attend the Re:live the international media art history conference. Over three stimulating days, historians, curators, media artists, creative arts practitioners and theorists at the forefront of their practice will explore the latest research and theories that challenge;

Conference Sessions on the History of :: art-science-technology :: biology :: the environment :: liveness :: the life of machines :: innovation ::

How do the media arts change? Through innovation, accident, discovery, mutation or crisis? How did contemporary media arts come to look and sound like they do? What options, potentialities and eccentricities in the history of media have been lost or overlooked or suppressed? What hopes have been realised and which dashed? What is the history of speculation on alternate histories, and how have they altered the course of media art history?
