RHIZOME

The Art Happens Here: Net Art Anthology

Edited with text by Michael Connor, Aria Dean, Dragan Espenschied. Text by manuel arturo abreu, Josephine Bosma, Megan Driscoll, Ceci Moss, Lila Pagola, Paul Soulellis, Elvia Wilk.

The Art Happens Here: Net Art Anthology

This richly illustrated volume retells the history of net art from the 1980s to the present day through thematic essays and interview extracts. It centers around the 100 works selected, restored and presented as part of the Net Art Anthology initiative, which originated as an online exhibition series in 2016 and continues with a touring gallery exhibition from January 2019. Artists featured include Morehshin Allahyari, Cory Arcangel, Shu Lea Cheang, DIS, Constant Dullaart, Cécile B. Evans, exonemo, Cao Fei, Lynn Hershman Leeson, JODI, Oliver Laric, Olia Lialina, Eva & Franco Mattes, Jayson Musson, Paper Rad, Pope.L, Jon Rafman, Rafaël Rozendaal, Wolfgang Staehle, Martine Syms, Ryan Trecartin, UBERMORGEN, Amalia Ulman, Artie Vierkant, Miao Ying and others.

The book and exhibition are the work of Rhizome, the born-digital art organization founded by artist Mark Tribe in 1996. Leveraging more than two decades of experience with net art and digital culture, The Art Happens Here represents Rhizome’s most complete effort to date to contextualize the art forms it champions.

Bringing to life the artistic communities, the surrounding social and political realities, and the changing technological contexts that have shaped artistic uses of the internet over a period of decades, The Art Happens Here features a unique design by Jiminie Ha/With Projects. Intended to function as an “informational object,” the book boasts a chroma-key green cover, “scrolling” text that spills off the top and bottom of the page and wraps around the back cover, and images that ask the reader to rotate the book as they would a smartphone.


Jayson Musson's "Many Nemes" (2009- 2018) is reproduced from 'The Art Happens Here: Net Art Anthology.'

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times

Sophie Haigney

[The works in this book] deal with ephemerality, loss and change — but also with the joy and weirdness of the web.

Artsy

Aria Dean

When it comes to canonization, “Net Art Anthology” is a consciously open canon, tracing but one of many possible paths through the history of net art.

Eye on Design

Liz Stinson

Dating from 1985 to the present, the works in The Art Happens Here make use of a wide range of mediums—including websites, software, sculpture, graphics, books, and merchandise—and represent a historical perspective on the breadth of net art practice. The artworks also offer distinct approaches to a central problem inherent in net art: how to come to terms with a dynamic, rapidly changing network culture while also actively participating in it.

Hyperallergic

Frani O'Toole

The web is host to countless cultural artifacts — artifacts that The Art Happens Here insists are dated by time and specific to place, resisting easy notions of the internet as somehow transcendent.

Ocula

Banyi Huang

By embracing the nebulousness and vitality of network culture as a whole, The Art Happens Here offers a diverse showcase of critical projects, while highlighting inherent paradoxes within such showcases of net art at large.

Digicult

Dating from 1985 to the present, the works in The Art Happens Here make use of a wide range of mediums—including websites, software, sculpture, graphics, books, and merchandise—and represent a historical perspective on the breadth of net art practice.

Brooklyn Rail

Madeline Weisburg

The book presents net art as a material with a history, rather than as a theme.
