-empyre- facilitates critical perspectives on contemporary cross-disciplinary issues, practices and events in networked media by inviting guests -key new media artists, curators, theorists, producers and others to participate in thematic discussions.
-empyre- is currently archived by Pandora, a project of the National Library of Australia, dedicated to preserving online publications of national significance for future generations, and by the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media at Cornell University, as a repository of emergent ideas amongst those working at the leading edge of contemporary practice.
-empyre- is not a chat space, nor an announcement or self promotion list, nor online performance space, and doesn’t accept HTML formatted email or attachments on the list. The facilitators reserve the right to not publish posts that disregard these guidelines, or the current month’s topics, disrespect the featured guests, or monopolize the forum either via individuals or group, and may unsubscribe anyone consistently doing so.
” Established in January 1999 in New York, e-flux is an international network which reaches more than 70,000 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.”

Not-for-profit arts organization that supports and provides a platform for new media art.
Rhizome is dedicated to the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology. Through open platforms for exchange and collaboration, our website serves to encourage and expand the communities around these practices. Our programs, many of which happen online, include commissions, exhibitions, events, discussion, archives and portfolios. We support artists working at the furthest reaches of technological experimentation as well as those responding to the broader aesthetic and political implications of new tools and media. Our organizational voice draws attention to artists, their work, their perspectives and the complex interrelationships between technology, art and culture.
