Rhizome puts the future of new media art in dialogue with its past — support the conversation, donate today.
Rhizome has been online since 1996 and I have been lucky enough to witness its growth from an informal email list to the organization it is today.
What I appreciate about Rhizome is that even as it continues to evolve and reinvent itself year after year, seeking out emerging ideas, artists, and areas of practice, it remains firmly rooted in a historical context. This can be seen not only in its pioneering work in the field of digital preservation, but also in programming and writing that finds contemporary relevance in media archives and brings different generations into dialogue.
Rhizome is a vital link between the past, present, and future of art and technology.
Support them, as I do. Give today.
— Christiane Paul, curator and scholar
