Re: <nettime> What do you think about .art?

IMHO one should never call oneself an artist, .art is .kitsch

Only onthers may call one an artist. Well, it could be a space of
art-dealers ("behind bars!"), but that would give it some drive into
.art and not.art, which could ne the most important domainname, that I
claim here and now as a creativ work, may other reserve themselves the
retro net.art.

Art is a no.word, let others like it, dont support it in any case,
