<nettime> Re: net art history

another josephine on the subject to confuse you all

we in 'vns matrix' (cyberfeminist artist group) were making interactive
artworks and text based performances on the internet pre web days.... as
were i always thought the term should have been as this genre of art only came about with the introduction of the
world wide web to the internet.

i was recently at an event where some of these artists were calling
themselves 'the fathers of'
....i guess the 'father's of' doesn't sound quite as sexy, but i
think you art historians should maybe point out the difference in your
texts as you assign male authorship in your art discourses as you have
throughout history.
