Re: <nettime> questions to nettime


V2 probably got it just about right all those years ago when
they called themselves "Institute for the Unstable Media".
"Unstable Media" not only covers all the technical media
(defined as anything that needs electricity and an on-off
switch) but also most 20th Century art forms -- from
Duchamp's Readymades to Christo's wrapped Reichstag.
The rest is little more than territorial squabbling among
academics.
