Hi Paul,

Geert needs to be more specific and highlight the curators who are 'not' 
scared and who have been showing technical artwork such as Furtherifeld 
& others - his words are not grounded and are too absolute, they do not 
reflect reality...

> "The absence at the 2015 Venice Bienale of digital arts and internet 
> works says it all. Curators are afraid to admit they are clueless and 
> continue their ignorant attitude towards art that deals with the 
> digital in a direct matter (while checking their smart phone). 
> Everyone jumps on the ‘post-digital’ bandwagon because that’s cute and 
> safe. [...] Curators and critics are more than happy to embrace the 
> race, gender, even the anthroposcene (whatever that is), but are blind 
> for the techno-politics of the equipment and media they are using 
> themselves so intensely. The contradictions are becoming absurd. Video 
> was the last technology they had to deal with, but then it stopped."
