Presentation and new Media – 10 Years checkpointmedia: concepts, paths, visions

Since 2001, the Vienna-based company checkpointmedia has produced multimedia Gesamtkunstwerke for exhibitions, museums, visitor centres and organisations. Besides an overview of projects carried out over the last ten years, the book "Presentation and New Media - 10 Years checkpointmedia: Concepts, Paths, Visions" contains essays by leading contemporary protagonists on the current discourse in the media, worlds of experience, communication and internet sectors. Seven chapters of the book are devoted to experts' contributions, interspersed with illustrations of checkpointmedia projects. The book elucidates the various aspects of the company's work, from research, artistic involvement, storytelling and the provision of information on subjects such as design, architecture and the integration of new technologies such as websites and content management systems, to the exploration of questions of identity, culture, communication and implementation - all of which are inextricably linked to one another.
