Our mission is to co-create extraordinary art that connects with contemporary audiences providing innovative, engaging and inclusive digital and physical spaces for appreciating and participating in practices in art, technology and social change. As well as finding alternative ways around already dominating hegemonies, thus claiming for ourselves and our peer networks a culturally aware and critical dialogue beyond traditional hierarchical behaviours. Influenced by situationist theory, fluxus, free and open source culture, and processes of self-education and peer learning, in an art, activist and community context.

Institution pulling rank..


BlankTime for a Debate...

Is the Institution pulling rank?

I mean, is this really real? It can't be. I would not of thought that the G=
etty Museum would even bother wasting their precious time with something so=
trivial unless they are suddenly becoming the FBI. If the Getty has decide=
d to pick on Curt - Furtherfield will begin a massive Net campaign/debate a=
bout issues of bullying & abuse to smaller art's organisations. They may ha=
ve the right to cause unrest and the power to use the Law but they are mora=
lly wrong in their action. Curt is innocent until proven guilty. If there i=
s evidence contradicting such; then a polite message should be enough when =
asking the image in question to be removed.

There could be a more undrlying issue emerging here, in relation to artists=
being supported by net organisations (usually for free) are challenging la=
rger insitutions just by existing, for many net art groups are being visite=
d regularly, with an increasing a global presence. What does everyone else =
think?

Sorry to bother you Cora, and I won't again, but you really thought I was=
dangerous, and that I have a cult? The cult part I can see but the danger=
ous leaves me confused. G2K is all pretty basic Frankfurt School stuff, an=
d more or less establishment net.art now. Plus I vote Nader.

Anyhow, best wishes, and hopes for energy without externalities,
