If net art is cashing in on the utopian promise of video art, what dream does net art have left for itself? Has it come full circle? Is net.art now at its end? And is it true what the net art veteran Mark Amerika proclaims via Twitter, that “video is the new net art”?

Perhaps the confusion in the question stems from a too-narrow understanding of net art thanks to the label “net.art”, which usually refers only to a small group of artists of a particular time (1995-1999). Such a designation could never really be adequate to the phenomenon of net art, because, like photography, painting, or video art, it is an art form – and art forms are above all defined by their medium. The medium of net art, however, is simply the net: whichever particular form net art takes is irrelevant for its definition. Whether its clients are connecting to the net using stationary computers with browsers or mobile devices with apps, whether their bandwidth speed is fast or slow – “net art will never die!”; since a society without the net is itself now inconceivable (just as it once was without the printing press).

Residence | @arselectronica Center / Future Lab, Linz: http://residence.aec.at. It's a bit hard to access this old, hidden — and certainly completely forgotten — URL in a desktop browser (privacy error, but you can overpass it), I had more luck on the phone (screenshots). It's certainly an amazing find: it contains some of the rare online works before the year 2000 which I was unable to find at the current AE Future Lab website https://ars.electronica.art/futurelab/en. It's a pity that they don't take proper care of the past and older works they have on their servers. It also says a lot about how much new and recent works are actually worth and what fate awaits them in a few years.
Still in the basement, reorganizing my archive. Today's find: @artpress.revue, November 1999, Annick Bureaud, Utopies distribuées; and my 'e/motion HELP – is there anybody out there?'
The days are hot, so I'm cooling down in the basement while reorganizing my archive: @beauxarts_magazin, November 2003 – Sprinkling Menstrual Navigator becoming part of the @centrepompidou permanent collection
Tidying and reorganizing my archive, because it's too messy and I can't find things. The 1999 COMTECart (@cynetart today) Festival catalog had a cover with a graphic from my work b.ALT.ica. The poster as well, but I can't find it.
