The Challenges of Curating Net Art
Summary of the Mobile Studio The Challenges of Curating Net Art Web Conference, May 26, 2006: After several attempts to connect all four parties with the festoon video conferencing system, which seemed to run quite unstable as a beta version, we switched over to the skype audio conferencing module.
Helen Thorington from Turbulence.org in Boston opened the discussion with a quote by Steve Dietz: "Internet art projects are art projects for which the net is both a sufficient and necessary condition of viewing/ expressing/ participating." This brought the talk immediately into the question of what net art actually is, versus new media versus contemporary art and what it means to all of us to work with this terminology.
