Hacking Culture.
Vigh, Pia
The paper presents the model behind net2art, a joint Nordic project of creating a platform for Nordic net art. The projects background and scope, organization, impact and experiences, funding structures, and copyright issues are covered. The paper argues that museums do not have a natural role in the distribution of net art (i.e., art that is made for, by use of, on, and/or with the Internet as the decisive technical or conceptual prerequisite), that the conservation tradition and expertise of museums do not make them suited for creating historical collections of net art without undergoing major upgrading, and that older art institutions have shown a superficial understanding of net art. Other relevant institutions that have established themselves on the Internet are described, including socially-based link selections, personal link selections, liberally moderated link selections/guides, moderated electronic discussion forums, unmoderated mailing lists and open networks, collections curated in the net art environment, and collections curated by offline art institutions.
