KARENINA.IT (poetry in phatic function) A web project by Caterina Davinio
davinio {AT} tin.it on line since 1998  -  By Jakobson, phatic is the use of the
language which has the finality to maintain open and operative the
communication channel among the interlocutors. On the confine between art
and critic, happening and net performance, Karenina.it is a virtual meeting
place around the theme of the writing and the new technologies, in which
experiences of international artists, curators, theoreticians converge, in a
net that counts thousands of contacts in the world.
