Net Art Anthology will play out in five distinct chapters. The first four will be chronological: early network cultures and early web (through 1998); Flash and blogs (1999-2005); surf clubs, early postinternet art, and social media platforms (2006-2011); and mobile apps and social media saturation (2012-present). The final chapter will reprise all time periods, addressing gaps that emerge over the course of the project.


The project specifically celebrates works of net art that:

  1. Use the net in ways that give expression to emerging subjectivities,
  2. Model new forms of collective cultural practice, and/or
  3. Exemplify aesthetic, subjective, political, and conceptual positions that have taken on singular and profound resonance within particular networks of artists.
  4. Can be meaningfully restaged, reconstructed, or reperformed for this exhibition.
