ABOUT PROGRAMME LIBRARY

Work in progress …

 

The selection of literature, artworks and other sources gathered here does not claim to be complete. The research comes from a variety of fields and disciplines. We have collected texts on the topics of infrastructure, smart city, wireless communication, media-aesthetic interventions, and the invisibility of wireless networks in English and German.
