Fleischmann, Monika and Strauss, Wolfgang (2009): Berechnete Gedanken - Interaktivitt als mediale Spiegelung. In: Matzker, Reiner and Dreyer, Ursula (eds.). "Medienwissenschaft. Teil 8: Verstndigung ber die Verstndigung. Aspekte der Medienkompetenz". Berlin, Germany: Peter Lang Publishing Grouppp. 11-128

In diesem Artikel beschreiben wir die Evolution von Interaktivitt in der Medienkunst, die einhergeht mit der Entwicklung von Vernetzungsstrukturen und der Herausbildung disziplinbergreifender Arbeitsweisen. Am Beispiel eigener Werke interaktiver Medien-Kunst der vergangenen 20 Jahre zeichnen wir die Entwicklung und Vernderung digitaler Medien von einer neuartigen sthetischen Erfahrung ber eine verstrkte Raumorientierung bis hin zum kulturellen Wissens- und Gedchtnisspeicher nach.

Fleischmann, Monika and Strauss, Wolfgang (2008): Staging of the Thinking Space. From Immersion to Performative Presence. In: Seifert, Uwe, Kim, Jin Hyun and Moore, Anthony (eds.). "Paradoxes of Interactivity". Bielefeld, Germany: Transcriptpp. 266-281

The term media art is used here for artistic activity which either uses or schematises digital technology interactively. Media art begins where the traditional film genre ends: with interactive and process-related digital narratives. The cinema builds up a relationship between audience and presentation, and the viewer is promised a collective experience. By contrast, interactive storytelling offers the observer an individually tailored encounter, where the YOU_ser is navigating the story. Based on rules of staging, media art conjoins with other cultural forms of expression such as performance, dance, theatre, film, architecture, sound, design or fashion. Media art gets its poetic strength from the new possibilities of interacting with its audience and from the cross-over between cognitive science and arts. In the last two decades, the authors have carried out media art research in institutes like Art+Com in Berlin, the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne and at Fraunhofer Institutes.

Fleischmann, Monika and Strauss, Wolfgang (2005): Implosion of Numbers - Performative Mixed Reality. In: Flachbart, Georg and Weibel, Peter (eds.). "Disappearing Architecture". Basel, Switzerland: Birkhuser Baselpp. 118-131

On the basis of their artistic work Fleischmann and Strauss show how they connect digital processes with everyday experience, virtual space with physical space. As part of their work they develop interfaces that place people at the center of a process, that looks for intercultural, ethical and aesthetic discourses under digital conditions. They understand their work as artistic research in mixed-reality environments. They talk about the complexity of todays world effected by digital processes and in-/tangible Interfaces. They present their work and show the hidden secrets behind things and reflect technical developments or create a critical and emotional confrontation with them. Media art as a mirror of the world!

Fleischmann, Monika and Reinhard, Ulrike (eds.) (2004): Digitale Transformationen. Medienkunst als Schnittstelle von Kunst, Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Heidelberg, Germany, Whois

Die Publikation "Digitale Transformationen" beschftigt sich mit den grundlegenden Transformationen, welche die Kunst und das moderne Leben durch digitale Technologien erfahren. Theoretiker, Knstler und Wissenschaftler kommen neben Produzenten, Frderern und Vermittlern zu Wort, um die digitalen Transformationen in ihren vielfltigen Rollen und an konkreten Beispielen als neue sthetik und als Innovationsforschung vorzustellen. In der Kunst mit Informationstechnologien geht es um Bild(er-)findungen auf der Grundlage kommunikativer Prozesse, um begriffliche Strategien und kognitive Methoden. Damit mchten die Herausgeberinnen Ulrike Reinhard und Monika Fleischmann nicht nur den klassischen Kulturbereich ansprechen, sondern die Medienkunst als knstlerische Position an der Schnittstelle von Technologie, Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft und Kultur denen nahe bringen, die bereit sind, diese Kunstform als einen wichtigen Schlsselfaktor fr neues Denken und Innovation anzuerkennen und zu frdern. Medienkunst zeigt neue Weltbilder. Sie zeigt, wie wir verstehen, was wir sehen und hren. Die Texte geben einen Einblick in Diskurs und Praxis im deutschsprachigen Raum und sind hier nachzulesen.
