1998-2001   Research project at Council for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences/HSFR: “Internet som konstnärligt                     medium: globalisering och utställningsrum” (Internet as an artistic medium: globalisation and exhibition space)

The research project aimed to investigate the earlier much-debated globalising potential of the Internet as used by artists in its early stages up to maturity. The concept of globalisation was investigated in relation to art projects carried by four different enterprises: the artist-run New York-based Adaweb, Dia Center for the Arts in New York, the Canadian electronic culture publication Ctheory, and the French-US publication Leonardo Online. These four projects host artworks on their sites, wrapped in a verbal-conceptual frame with various degrees of interest in globalism.
