    What is New Media Art? What does this term really describe? What has occasioned the schism between this term and the art scene it is supposed to describe? And lastly, what can explain the limited presence of this artistic practice – which appears to have all the credentials for representing an era in which digital media are powerfully reshaping the political, economic, social and cultural organisation of the world we live in – in critical debates? All these and many other questions are tackled by Italian art critic Domenico Quaranta in his book Beyond New Media Art (Link Editions, 2013).
