From Greek antiquity to the present, from the book to the gramophone, from Gutenberg to Google, our culture is defined by changes in recording, storage, and transmission media. In a six-volume selection of his writings, Peter Weibel presents an encyclopedia that addresses all areas of the media world. The author has conceived this series as following in the tradition of the Enlightenment and the Encyclopédie by Denis Diderot and Jean Baptiste le Rond d’Alembert. After two volumes covering architecture and music, volume 3 and 4 will be published in 2018 addressing the influence of the new media on art and literature. Politics and theory in the context of new media are the topics of volume 5 and 6 that are also in preparation.
