JavaMuseum – netart Features
Elena Giulia Rossi
Travelling in Internet is still possible, but in terms of netart it is a travel without return. The opening of the show at MAXXI – The Museum of the Art of the 21st Century in Roma
is representing the occasion to set a focus again on “NETART” and its potential concerning medium of the Internet, and at the same time to commemorate the comprehinsive JavaMuseum show in the framework of NewMediaFest2007. The show “Netspace-Travels to Art on the Net” – curated by Elena Giulia Rossi at MAXXI is just a short time earlier than the JavaMuseum show – Seven Ways for Saying Internet with Net Art – which the same curator is curating for JavaMuseum. The today’y article would like to honor Elena Giulia Rossi for curating both shows, and by setting the focus on the JavaMuseum context 2007, to honour all participating artists and those works which still are available as a travel destination in the net.
At the same time, JavaMuseum is announcing its transformation in 2021 into The New Institute for Contemporary Art & Media Archeology – dedicated to research and presevation of media technologies threatened with extinct, for instance Shockwave or Flash – and place the threatened works into a special exhibition context, it is the transformation of JavaMuseum for a higher goal.
