Michael Mandiberg is an interdisciplinary artist whose work crosses multiple forms and disciplines in order to trace the lines of political and symbolic power as it takes shape online. Building on the conceptual tradition, Mandiberg orders and reorders information, remixing the forms in which it manifests or solidifies. While technically sophisticated, the work eschews the novelty of new technology in favor of an exploration of appropriation, the digital vernacular, the ways in which these new technologies impact our lives, and the politics and poetics of technological subjectivities.
Mandiberg sold all of his possessions online on Shop Mandiberg, made perfect copies of copies on AfterSherrieLevine.com, created Firefox plugins that highlight the real environmental costs of a global economy on TheRealCosts.com, and transformed all of Wikipedia into books for Print Wikipedia. Mandiberg is co-author of Digital Foundations and Collaborative Futures, as well as the editor of The Social Media Reader. Mandiberg founded the New York Arts Practicum, and co-founded the Art+Feminism Wikipedia Editathon.
Mandiberg’s projects have been presented at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), The New Museum, Postmasters Gallery, Denny Gallery, Art-in-Buildings Financial District Project Space, Arizona State University Library/Museum, Eyebeam, Ars Electronica, Jeu De Paume, Plug.in, Transmediale, and ZKM. Mandiberg has received of fellowships, residencies and commissions from LACMA, Eyebeam, The Wikimedia Foundation, MacDowell Colony, Rhizome.org, The Banff Centre, and Turbulence.org. Mandiberg’s work has been written about widely, including Artforum, Art in America, ARTnews, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal.
