The touchscreen belongs to a century-long history of hands-on media practices and touchable art objects. This media-archaeological excavation examines the nature of our sensual involvement with media and invites the reader to think about the touchscreen beyond its technological implications. In six chapters, the book questions and historicizes both aspects of the touchscreen, considering “touch” as a media practice and “screen” as a touchable object.

Screening of “Distancing” (2019) and “DROGA!” (2014), by artist Miko Revereza, followed by a discussion on the entanglement of cinema, migration, and the fugitive agency of ‘stateless’ cinema in the ruins of psychological and geographical chasms. Distancing (16mm, 10min, Color, 2019) Shot on 16mm colour film, Distancing documents the logistics and poetics of Miko Revereza’s decision to leave the United States and return to the Philippines. ‘My ticket is one way’, the filmmaker explains to his grandmother as she suddenly realizes he isn’t coming back.

The Video Vortex Reader is the first collection of critical texts to deal with the rapidly emerging world of online video – from its explosive rise in 2005 with YouTube, to its future as a significant form of personal media. After years of talk about digital convergence and crossmedia platforms we now witness the merger of the Internet and television at a pace no-one predicted. These contributions from scholars, artists and curators evolved from the first two Video Vortex conferences in Brussels and Amsterdam in 2007 which focused on responses to YouTube, and address key issues around independent production and distribution ...

This book is an introduction, not to ‘the philosophy’ or ‘the work’ of Gilles Deleuze, but to each of his individual works. A number of general introductions already exist.

They assume, in short, that the body of works under consideration are fundamentally homogenous. It is true of course that the synthetic mode of summary sometimes gives rise to insightful and even daring portraits of Deleuze; more fre- quently it has led to the production of inaccurate and ...
