Are these media new ?

Under the editorship of Eric Alloi and Isabelle Raynauld

[la version française suit]

The 6th issue of is concerned with the concepts and

literature, cinema and other hybrid forms, what critical point of view are
we able to bring to an artistic practice that is still embryonic?
