Rhizome’s New and Improved ArtBase Prolongs Life of More than 2,200 Pieces of Born-Digital Art

After years of R&D, Rhizome’s online archive of born-digital art, the ArtBase, relaunches with a new Wikibase infrastructure, improved metadata, and presentation. Initiated in 1999 to preserve internet art from technical obsolescence, the archive now holds more than 2,200 artworks, including early treasures such as Maciej Wisniewski’s Scroll Bar (1998, image). “With this relaunch, we are not presenting a final version of the ArtBase,” writes Rhizome, “but an open and dynamic one, that will be developed further.”
