Roberto Echen -born in Rosario/Argentina, is working since 1980 in different art disciplines and teaching at the School of Fine Arts of the National University of Rosario since 1987. He started in 1997 working with computers and incorporated Internet with the aim of making art on the net, and joined later a group of research on art and technology at the University of Rosario, working through Internet instead of having a physical space. In 2000, Roberto Echen became Coordinator of Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Art Juan B. Castagnino of Rosario, Argentina, and was envolved in 2004 in the creation of MACRO (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Rosario - museum of contemporary art of Rosario) and became general curator of it.
