The New Museum for Networked Art – founded on January 1, 2000 as NewMediaArtProjectNetwork://cologne, an international, English-language (non-profit) initiative for art and new media based in operating from Cologne/Germany, led and curated by the media artist and curator Agricola de Cologne.
Including about 100 international curators, the initiative became in 2010 The New Museum of Networked Art with its own digital collections. The collection of art videos from 2000 to 2023 includes around 10,000 digital works of art from 3,000 international artists.
Initially focused on interactive images before 2005 and primarily on moving images since 2005, the award-winning network structure realizes its projects in collaboration with internationally networked partners in an exchange between virtual and physical space, presented at biennials, museums and festivals.
In 2020, the Museum of Networked Art launched the “Alphabet Art Center” in an exchange between virtual and physical space.
Since 2000, the main contexts of the experimental curatorial activities were JavaMuseum – internet-based / interactive art, SoundLAB – sonic art projects, CologneOFF – International Video Art Festival and The 7 Memorials for Humanity.
The presentation at TRYST is standing under the motto –
Identity of Color – art and moving Images in a global context – featuring the projects of
Vacations in the Subconscious – Peace Letters to Ukraine
