Established in January 1999 in New York, e-flux is an international network which reaches more than 90,000 visual art professionals on a daily basis through its website, e-mail list and special projects. Its news digest – e-flux announcements – distributes information on some of the world's most important contemporary art exhibitions, publications and symposia.
The daily digest is put together in cooperation with nearly two thousand leading international museums, art centers, foundations, galleries, biennials and art journals. Our focused and selective approach to the information we choose to distribute has been rewarded by an exceptionally high degree of attention and responsiveness from our readers.
- Hans Ulrich Obrist interviews Anton Vidokle and Julieta Aranda about the history of e-flux
- Daniel Birnbaum's essay "Temporal Spasms"
With its expertise in the historical and contemporary development of art gained through years of collaboration with thousands of practitioners, institutions, and publications in virtually all parts of the world, e-flux plans to bring this knowledge to the .art top-level domain. e-flux envisions this new space as a reliable, ethical, selective, and educational resource for art professionals, educators, institutions, and especially the public at large.
The .art TLD will cater to the needs of a substantial international community that is directly or indirectly involved in the creation, promotion, marketing, education, exhibition, and development of art and artistic works, and this under the supervision of a committee of experts comprising of art historians, artists and curators who are active in this community.
A substantial part of the revenues generated by this service will be returned to the art community in a form of grants and funding for underfunded art institutions, organizations and projects.
