A very cool use of tags. And great article. Good way to think about blogging too.
This essay makes the case for abandoning the claim that art is property–material or intellectual–and suggests alternatives that may be more useful for artists and their heirs. “Why Art Should Be Free” was originally published in August 2002 on the listserves Rhizome.org and Nettime.org. A version entitled “The Digital Sanctuary” was subsequently printed in Lucy Kimbell, ed., New Media Art: Practice and Context in the UK 1994-2004 (London: Arts Council England/Cornerhouse, 2004).
