launch date:
topic: ?art"

galleries, festivals; despite the critical discourses raised in the
eighties these institutions still tend to exclude art from outside the
triad of power North America, Europe, Japan; also new disciplines like
net art very slowly if ever infiltrate the art-system; this telepolis
issue wants to feature art from marginalized regions and disciplines,
thereby trying to find a new definition for the term ?art" that somehow
has become odd and obsolete;
