DISCUSSION

Rethinking Curating: Art After New Media


The book sounds like a very interesting book, for artists and curators, and I am both.
I will eager to read it when I get back to the States.
Although again with Rhizome, it always sounds as it is "preaching to the choir" for
a short, select list. The open free quality of Rhizome is gone. I would be interested to
see more non institutional connections outside of the usual.
