Re: <nettime> Re: Re: net art history


now may i suggest that yes the simple gesture in the acquisition of  "space"
anywhere for the purposes of art is a radical political gesture at this
point in time.

GH Comments:

For most net  artists/ artists working in digital media, especially in the
USA it's all about resisting the push to institutionalize, commodify and
package creativity.  It's also about the positive notion of creating a free
area where the artist can make work. Or as Cary says acquisition of space
for the purpose of art. I would like to note that this acqusition of space
for the purpose of art is radical when it is accomplished by an individual
or group of artists.
