The booklet and respective website is the setout for an inquiry into the conditions, modes and potentials of critique of, in, and through ‘media’. It was developed on occasion of a discussion session held by IXDM’s Critical Media Lab and guests at Transmediale 2015 in Berlin. The field notebook is a collection of responses by invited scholars, artists and designers on three provocative questions: What are promising modes of critique today? What is critical about media technologies? What comes after critique?
