Studies in Network Cultures is a series produced in collaboration with nai010 publishers. The books investigate concepts and practices specific to the shifting environment of network cultures.

INC Readers give an overview of the present day research, critique, and artistic practices in a thematic research field at once broad and limited. The set up is multidisciplinary, with academic (humanities, social sciences, software studies etc.), artistic, and activist contributors.

Network Notebooks present new media research commissioned by the INC, giving researchers and other potential authors the chance to write a lengthy essay one the topic of their interest, as a (preliminary) conclusion of previous research work and/or laying the ground works for a future research project.

Theory on Demand presents an ‘archive of content production’ available in print-on-demand. The series includes reprints of theoretical new media work, for example dissertations or books that have gone out of stock, but also new work that’s unfit for traditional publishers.

Conference reports collect all blog posts and results from an INC event.

Tulipomania DotCom Reader

  In times of rapid growth of new media as an economic factor, the danger of creating a stagnating cultural ghetto is immediate. The aim of Tulipomania was not to express “Schadensfreude” towards all those who gambled – and lost, nor to mobilize resentment towards the steadily growing number of Internet millionaires.
