Unfortunately I think I gave too much space to finance and perhaps introduced the lenses of feminism and futurity too late as modes of thinking the relations of then and now with respect to net art.

Very briefly, futurity…the sense in which a future is already impinging upon, defining and producing the present. Three moments in a timetable of futurity for net art:

1.Discussions on nettle from 1997 about the net being a space of opportunities/potential/ future difference for art ‘on’ the net

2.In 2010, Prince declared that the Internet was over and the theme for transmediale 2010 was ‘FUTURITY NOW. 

3. The nowness of post-internet art...

what kind of future present does a ‘post interne' bequeath contenpoary networked art?

Does anyone on the list see themselves as a post-internet artist? Why?

Just curious!
