I agree. I'm glad for what exists too but to see an organization that once helped struggling artists with funding for innovative projects now funding old-school documentation is sad. I'm not sure how long it's been that way but it surprised me. I thought they were still funding art projects.
I guess it's one of those inevitable things; wanting to hold onto a pleasant
moment in time.
Before the artworld and academe grabbed "New Media" (sic) my experience with
Rhizome was a good, generous grass-roots community.
We know what things have become - multivariant, but much less lensed.
I think that here and maybe the Chicago Glitch scene are closest to the
open, generous sort of community.
I'm glad for what exists.
