[CC] "circulating contexts--curating media/net/art"
1 June - 31 October 2007

The curating of Internet-based art on the Internet is a multifaceted
communication-process between Internet-users with all kinds of
different backgrounds regarding the content. Along with the changing
conditions of production and reception of art on the Internet came new
possibilities of curation which deserve study. [CC] "circulating
contexts--curating media/net/art" is a series of experimental
long-term research projects hosted by the Vienna-based organisation
CONT3XT.NET, investigating current tendencies in the curation of (New)
Media and Internet Art. For the catalogue which will be presented in
October 2007 in Vienna as well as online, we currently seek
contributions to the following sub-projects.


[CC] "curating media/net/art--discussions"
1 June - 31 August 2007

In a first move participants are invited to contribute to the
mailinglist [CC] "curating media/net/art--discussions", a slightly
moderated discussion-list which will be run from 1 June to 31 August
2007. During this period five common topics concerning the curation of
(New) Media and Internet Art will be the starting point for
discussions, lead by the participants. Excerpts of the contributions
to the mailinglist will be published in the catalogue.

1 visualizing work.flows and (filtering-)processes
2 virtual/real representations in real/virtual spaces
3 facing participation / the lack of collaboration
4 web 2.0--curatorial facilities or technical barriers
5 involvement of (art-)institutions / rise of significance
