The city of Vienna is following a new approach in funding art. Artists in the field of netart will not apply for grants at a city’s department but dispose them among the community themselves. A software based voting system called Mana will be installed for delegating votes and credits within the netart community’s participants. NetzNetz, the platform of the Viennese netartists was founded in opposition to Public Netbase that was obtaining the majority of the city’s funding for new media art projects. The start up of the new funding model is accompanied by the conference Parliaments of Art. Read my contribution Making Sense of Discourse.
