Internet and Culture
The increased use of the Internet since the late 1990s has had a large impact on how arts and culture products such as films, books, cds, museum exhibitions, etc., are produced, distributed, acquired, and received. This article aims to discuss some of the most relevant developments in the study of the Internet's relation to arts and culture from a social-scientific perspective. It focuses on (1) processes of producing and distributing culture (material production); (2) ways in which cultural products are classified and legitimated (symbolic production); and (3) behaviors and perceptions of cultural audiences.
