Critical Art Ensemble (US)


  Critical Art Ensemble (CAE) is a collective of five tactical media practitioners of various specializations including computer graphics and web design, film/video, photography, text art, book art, and performance. Formed in 1987, CAE's focus has been on the exploration of the intersections between art, critical theory, technology, and political activism. The collective has performed and produced projects for an international audience, and has written three books: The Electronic Disturbance, and its companion text, Electronic Civil Disobedience and Other Unpopular Ideas, and Flesh Machine: Cyborgs, Designer Babies, and New Eugenic Consciousness. The group's latest book, Digital Resistance: Explorations in Tactical Media, is forthcoming.
