'Art and the Internet examines the legacy of art using, situated on and referencing the internet over the last couple of decades. Breaking the subject down into distinct chapters: net.art, Activist art and Surveillance-Related Work, Internet-Enabled Participatory, Postinternet Art and Social Media Influenced Art and Identity Construction, the book explores the relationship between the work of leading practitioners using the internet in multiple ways.

Nicholas Lambert, Joanne McNeil and Domenico Quaranta's specially commissioned essays provide the contextual information behind the artworks featured, encouraging new opinion and debate, further encouraged by new interview material found in the book's Appendix. These are followed by reprinted essays and manifestos offering an alternative chronology of the internet via "changing of the time" opinions from the late 1980s until today.' - from the back cover
