Internet art, net art, and networked art in relation

Conversations and interviews with curators, artists and directors

By Karen Annemie Verschooren

The complete records of this investigation can be found at cms.mit.edu/research/theses.php and present the reader with an elaborate discussion of the key players, institutions and discourses on aesthetics, economics and exhibition methodologies that characterize Internet art's relation with the traditional institutions for contemporary art. The sociological analysis of the past and current situation aims to offer a solid ground for extrapolations and predictions for Internet art's future as an art world, and its relation to the traditional art institutions. An essay based on this research is scheduled to be published in February 2008 in "The Weight of photography" (tentative title).
