Dear List,

I'm happy to announce that to co-incide with MediaArtHistories in Riga, October's Theme will be hosted by Charlotte Frost (historian of contemporary and digital art) and the topic will be ‘art history online’:

Discussion points will include:

·       What types of art historical, critical and contextual modes does the internet support?

·       How have discussion lists changed the way we generate art knowledge?

·       How far have we come since the early lists in truly democratizing art discussion and creating alternate contextual practices?

·       What are some of the valuable new experiments being staged in the critical exploration of the arts?

·       What impact does all this have on the future of the art history book?


Each week Frost will begin discussing a new issue drawn from her research on post-internet art history and she will publicly invite responses from the list and beyond (Frost will also approach people privately using email and directly through other social media in order to gather more opinions and feed these back into the list-based discussion). Her aim is to rigorously test out ideas about the evolution of art contextual activities on the very pioneers who shaped these spaces and systems. She will preview sections from her forthcoming book, Art History Online, invite people to directly criticize her work and/or corroborate the facts. In doing this she aims to:

A)    Work in a manner (publicly and online) that is more closely aligned with the practices and platforms the book will explicate.

B)    Coordinate the creation of a robust online archive on the history of online art discussion. For example she aims to revisit the history of lists, on a list, and make sure many of the key discussions and actions that have shaped its history are identified, linked to and discussed. This will generate a sort of live art history book on discussion lists and the archive will exist as a permanent counterpoint to the eventual print-published text of Art History Online.
In the first week Frost will begin with the origins of discussion lists. Who started which list, where and why and what were some of the posts that established the list’s reputation. She will draw out some of the history that isn’t already described online and give list originators the opportunity to reflect, some years later, on what happened during these times. Then she will go on to ask people how they might theorize art discussion lists: as artistic or political statements in themselves? As living documents or performance spaces? As ways of hacking the systems of art making and contextualization?
Participants include:
