Help Rhizome strengthen our roots


Dear Patrick,

Fact that one *ass tale* provoke such detailed answer show that art have =
specific mental space which is hard to replace/translate with =
administrative language. Anyway we are thankful for your direction and =
friendly advice a propos our further status in Rhizome =
org(pay-today-style).We=E2=80=99ll pay you(Rhizome)if we decide up to =
31.December 2007.Let=E2=80=99s save that as our sweet secret? We owe =
that to =E2=80=98democracy=E2=80=99 (?)=20

MANIK=E2=80=99S previous experience with Rhizome was very exciting; in =
beginning it was kind of unique heuristic

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heuristic ) adventure. MANIK remember =
those days with certain sentiment.

We do hope you could know that artist have no contract which regulates =
their fluxes. We don=E2=80=99t work in office and our attempt to change =
your (Rhizome) rules shows our misunderstanding with common sense. We =
could be proud on that, but we are not. It=E2=80=99s to late-clerks =
defined how, where and why art must, or should exist. We remember =
Deleuse&Guatari said that schicophreniac, clairvoyant and artist could =
change the world. Now we are sad witness that bureaucracy take over =
their competence and place for possible define freedom is mark by new =
ruling class.MANIK is sad that step by step all ideas of Deleuse&Guatari =
became bunch of administrative directive far from art and creative =
thinking. What=E2=80=99s left? Portfolios as reservation for creative =
energy, closed place far from this moment, far from* NOW*.Are you afraid =
to take thing as they came, all those NOW drive you nervous? But you =
have a cure: you don=E2=80=99t hesitate to teach MANIK what=E2=80=99s =
right and wrong.Thanks! It=E2=80=99s better for you to try with teaching =
lessons on someone without institutional power than to take risk and =
lecture somebody from your social circle.

Actually it=E2=80=99s not possible even to think about something like =
that.=E2=80=99 New =E2=80=98Rhizome was built in collusion with this =
people who like limitations, directions from the top, they like orders, =
they fell comfortable only without their own will, for them freedom =
means to be free from make their own decision=E2=80=A6etc.Actualy, I =
know so much about that kind of people because they=E2=80=99re clones, =
they=E2=80=99re same everywhere=E2=80=A6in Serbia, USA, =
Rusia=E2=80=A6They make new world on the same principle as 70 years =
before. And that make us sad. And that=E2=80=99s why we stay =
=E2=80=98rhizomers=E2=80=99, because we have tiny illusion that somebody =
from there could hear our voice.

So, dear Patrick we=E2=80=99ve give you answer. We are going to pay 25$ =
right on time. Not because of your arrogance (in this particular case =
asking for money was rude).We are going to pay because we still believe =
in few guys from Rhizome and in general principle of superiority of =
creativity.

Dear manik vauda marija manik nikola pilipovic,

Rhizome is a rarity. We are a contemporary art organization defined by =
dialogue. Our website serves as the primary real estate through which =
our programs and the art we champion is made available. Instead of =
admission fees, we rely on member contributions to secure our =
foundation. We thank you for your previous membership with Rhizome, and =
ask that you consider renewing now during our annual Community Campaign:

https://rhizome.org/support/about_you.rhiz

Campaign proceeds will go towards our online programs, all of which =
require ongoing development. Our latest website redesign reflects the =
direction of these programs and our expanded commitment to participatory =
culture.

Here are a few notable upgrades:

a.. Artists can now publish works directly to online portfolios, =
making rhizome.org even richer in new art. The Rhizome staff still =
selects works for our curated archive, the Artbase, but there is no =
longer a time-consuming submission process. Being an artist is hard =
work, and we respect artists=C3=A2=E2=82=AC=E2=84=A2 time and =
investment.=20
b.. Our new discussion tools enable, enrich and connect =
conversations across the Rhizome site.=20
c.. Our community directory is now a free resource open to everyone. =
The more artists, curators, critics and others who have their profiles =
available on Rhizome, the more useful our site is to those seeking =
collaborators and knowledge about the field.=20
d.. The recent addition of Creative Commons licensing options to the =
Artbase extends our practice of using Open Source software and =
platforms.=20

Rhizome is building a responsive architecture that activates and =
nurtures the field we support. We ask that you help us maintain this =
commitment by renewing your membership today:

https://rhizome.org/support/about_you.rhiz

We need you to keep growing!

Sincerely,

Patrick May
Director of Technology
