Videoart Network
A new great initiative by Magmart!
We are currently working on an international project focused on building a network for all videoart-related peoples (artists, curators, spaces, collectors, simply enthusiasts).
This will be a useful tool, mainly for all curators that work with videoart. More, it will also contain a large database (of artists and curators), that will be always fully open to your personal data management. You can access and modify the stored data, at any time, add new informations, or simply delete your presence. And, obviously, we'll never use your data for commercial purposes and won't transfer it to third parties, neither for money nor for free.
Why don't you to take part, and link to our videoart database? Check if your email address is already present, and enter your details. If not, just register and insert your data!
The network will be online very soon!
