artintact is a combined book and CD-ROM package in which the ZKM- Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe presents pioneering works of interactive media art. It is a collection of art treasures of a very specific kind: the editions of artintact are among the few examples of concepts devised specifically for the CD-ROM medium. It has become a multi-facetted cross-section of media art. Each edition casts a new light on ideas and concepts of the practice of art in view of the variegated, forking paths programmatically offered by the medium. The fifth annual edition equally reflects developments in the context of ZKM (Masaki Fujihata and Agnes Hegedüs are/were artists-in-residence at the ZKM-Institute for Visual Media) as well as the perspectives of artists whose terrain is not primarily media art: the performance ensemble Forced Entertainment stages projects in theatres and galleries spaces as well as in public spaces or on the Internet. The artintact book contains texts on the works by various authors, along with detailed lists of the artists works and biographical information. The artists: Masaki Fujihata, born in Tokyo in 1956, lives and works in Tokyo. His works have won several prizes, including the Golden Nica of Prix Ars Electronica, Linz.ì Agnes Hegedüs, born in Budapest in 1964, lives and works in Karlsruhe.ì Forced Entertainment is one of the UK's most renowned performance groups. ì The London based photographer Hugo Glendinning has photographed a wide variety of British and international performance, dance and visual artists and their work.
