I think Geert is probably correct though - seems to me the art
"establishment" aren't interested in internet/ digital art, though maybe
they have a different view of it from us on here.  The art world remains a
mystery to me, so I may well be wrong. Thank god for Furtherfield, and I
would love to know who are the curators 'not' scared of it.

What's the ‘post-digital’ bandwagon?
