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).

[Art on the mobile phone display] 📲 Neues für #Wap: #Kunst im Handydisplay ● Christiane Wettig, Net Business Magazin, München, 26. Juni 2000 soNet – WAP sei Dank, jetzt gibt es sogar Kunst für #Handys. wap.sonnet – microbe.4/wap.art ist die wahrscheinlich erste WAP-Kunst der Welt. Igor Štromajer heisst der Schöpfer des telematischen Werkes, das mit einfachsten Mitteln über das Leben in den Zeiten des WAP berichtet. Da wird geflüstert, geschwiegen und gestorben, werden Zahlen zu Menschen oder verwandeln sich Klammern und Sternchen in Gefühle. Ein Rätsel mit und über die neue Technologie und eine kleine, freche Eulenspiegelei. Denn bislang haben vor allem Geschäftsleute und Technikfreaks teuere WAP-Handys, und die benutzen ihre Telefone in erster Linie ganz pragmatisch. “Plötzlich prallen sie auf das WAP-#Sonnet, haben keine Ahnung, wofür es ist und was sie mit der sinnlosen Information machen sollen”, schmunzelt der 32-jährigen Slowene. “Ich bringe also Geschäftsleute durcheinander und erzähle ihnen vom Bruch in der #Kommunikation.” Dass er für seine Arbeit nur die eingeschränkten Möglichkeiten einer Handytastatur zur Verfügung hat, findet der preisgekrönte Netzkünstler “wunderbar”. Dennoch will er keine weitere “WAP-Art” machen. “WAP ist tot, die dritte Handygeneration wird komplett interaktiv und multimedial sein.” ➠ wp.me/p1vWRY-b9

If you're an online curator, act like one! Seriously, I mean, khm, this is a bit embarrassing, but anyway: if you and your gallery are forced to put your next show online due to the virus, sure, cool, do it, it's practical to have everything at hand while quarantined, but please, please don't be sluggish and don't just throw everything into a facebook album and claim it's an exhibition. There are hundreds of practical examples of – and theoretical reflections on – various forms of online shows, www projects, networked art events, etc., lots and lots of diverse references dating back to the 1970s, not to mention the 1990s and later. Simply throwing all the photos into one facebook album is not an online exhibition, only the 'nouveau en ligne' think it is. Don't be ignorant, do your research, learn, be innovative (at least make a website), do your work. Beside that, art looks much better on instagram. If you're an online curator, act like one!
