Michael Mandiberg is an interdisciplinary artist whose work crosses multiple forms and disciplines in order to trace the lines of political and symbolic power as it takes shape online. Building on the conceptual tradition, Mandiberg orders and reorders information, remixing the forms in which it manifests or solidifies. While technically sophisticated, Mandiberg's work eschews the novelty of new technology in favor of an exploration of appropriation, the digital vernacular, the ways in which these new technologies impact our lives, and the politics and poetics of technological subjectivities.

Mandiberg received an MFA from California Institute of the Arts and a BA from Brown University. Mandiberg's projects have been presented at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), The New Museum, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Denny Gallery, Art-in-Buildings Financial District Project Space, Arizona State UniversityMuseum & Library, and Transmediale amongst others. Mandiberg's work has been written about widely, including Artforum, Art in America, ARTnews, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal.

Mandiberg is the recipient of a LACMA Art+Technology Lab grant, three Eyebeam fellowships, a Mellon fellowship at the CUNY Graduate Center, several Wikimedia Foundation grants, and commissions from Rhizome, Turbulence.org, and Link Art Center/Abandon Normal Devices. Mandiberg has participated in residencies at the Banff Centre, Eyebeam, the MacDowell Colony, and 18th Street Arts Center.

Mandiberg is a Professor of Media Culture at the College of Staten Island/CUNY and is on the Doctoral Faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center. Founder of the New York Arts Practicum, and co-founder of the Art+Feminism Wikipedia, Mandiberg lives in, and bicycles around, Brooklyn. Mandiberg's work lives at Mandiberg.com.
