In the networked art the artwork 's boundaries
dissolve in the intertwined relationships between
subjects, objects, strategies and theories. This
process not only modifies artistic, political and
commercial models, but it transforms the culture,
the languages and the logic behind the theories
of the interconnected society.
Inter-disciplinarity, indetermination,
transformation, decentralization and interaction,
are among the key concepts of the sixties. But
they are also the background of the artists that
have used the telematic networks to plan new
worlds or to critique the existing ones. The
conference 'History of the Net Arts' has the
purpose to gather some important experiences
about some of the most active subjects, their
actions and external collaboration with
institutions, groups and movements, the
technologies they used and, even more
importantly, their theorical, social and cultural
