The strange tale of Rhizome and its Arts Council funding
"Rhizome's Seven on Seven event took place last weekend at the Barbican
in London. Bringing artists and technologists together, it was the first
event on British soil for the digital arts organisation and was
sponsored by a number of organisations including Wieden + Kennedy.
Why and how Rhizome required Arts Council funding for the event,
however, was opened up in a series of supposedly leaked emails, released
over the weekend.
A Twitter account was set up called @jiggawebz93 by a person who remains
anonymous, and the account has since been suspended. The account appears
to have been created to leak information about Rhizome's application to
Arts Council England (ACE), with the account owner claiming to have
hacked into Rhizome's email and web CMS."
Here is the link to the rest of the article on the matter.
