Hi Everyone,

Some news from Australia. It looks as though we have a worst case scenario -
a museological term for a movement.

"In a devastatingly serious failure of nerve, shocking ignorance of the
state of the arts, let alone total absence of the marketplace verve for
which it has lately come to pride itself, the Australia Council for the Arts
has "dissolved" its New Media Arts Board (NMAB), distributing its charges to
the Visual Arts/Craft and Music Boards respectively. The responsibility for
the hybrid arts component of the NMAB will now be in the hands of a newly
invented "Inter-Arts Office" (not a Board, and apparently therefore without
continuous peer assessor presence) which will "triage" funding applicants to
appropriate traditional artform boards. Triage? Are we now "patients"? It's
only a step on from the perverse misnomer of "clients" and it complements
the ill state of the many badly under-funded arts companies across the
country. But who exactly is sick? Could it be the Australia Council itself?"
(Keith Gallasch)

In my current set of writing, I am making the argument that at best New
Media is at best a broad classification, and at worst becoming a
museological term for a movement.  I'm also linking it to the remnants
of the Modernist Avant-Garde.

Here's a question - is the idea of defining New Media dying, i.e. is it
becoming integrated into the mainstream enough that its distinction
might be becoming without signifying power (my idea of the exhaustion of
the symbol?)
