Wide Support for Public Netbase

The importance of Public Netbase as participative platform in the digital age and as interface between art, culture and the information society is beyond dispute. Over the past years, the broad range of new media projects and events produced by Public Netbase have provided an important contribution to Vienna's cultural trajectory.

More than other institutions, Public Netbase has been severely affected by the political changes of recent years. Today as in 2000, the existence of Public Netbase is under permanent threat. It was its unequivocal position on cultural policies, and its critical art and culture work, that lead to Public Netbase's eviction from the Museumsquartier. Ever since then, Public Netbase has been struggling with locational problems.

The signatories of this letter wish to express their grave concern about the fact that Public Netbase's international importance and standing is still not being met by a corresponding provision of secure basic conditions.

We request the Vienna City Government to secure the basic conditions for successful work in art, culture and new media, as stipulated by the municipal council's resolutions of 2000 and 2001.
