I prefer the 'Andy Warhol - rejected from the RomaEuropaWebFactory Prize' work.


Judging by the amount of people who viewed it '393', in contrast to 35 for the RomaEuropaWebFactory post.

Why wasn't RomaEuropaWebFactory post put on the front page of Rhizome?

you've got a point marc!

let us be optimistic: maybe they didn't notice as they were too busy participating to the RomaEuropaFAKEFactory competition and critical process? ;)


and hello rhizomers: there's some enormous news with this!

sounding like: "a net art project officially presented at the italian senate as the trigger to a significative political action on culture and creativity"

more info in a couple of days :)

Hi Salvatore,

I agree, it is always a useful tactic to be optimistic ;-)

tactic, but demanding!
i was actually waiting for a response from them!

it would be interesting: as you know REFF is turning out to be an incredble action, hijacking the common practices of a national government to let people working in arts and creativity have their institutional say.

and it is open in a global, international perspective

it is *truly* interesting t know what organizations such as rhizome think about these kinds of initiatives: after all they state being internationally networked and have do tend to promote actions dealing with the current crisis and with cultural politics

in my point of view it would be really significative if they'd catch the opportunity to support something that is not only focused on NY/Canada etc
