Art Criticism Online in Helsinki

Finnish Academy of Fine Arts awaits everyone to the Nordic seminar on Internet Art Publications on February 7, 2013 at 2–6 pm. Participants include writers and editors of various online art journals: Kunsten.nu (Taani), Konsten.net (Rootsi), Kunstkritikk.com (Norra), Mustekala.info (Soome) ja Artishok (Eesti).

Since a large part of today's art criticism is published online, this fact makes us confront several questions. The most poignant of these are probably concerned with the quality and the amount of criticism: the growing number of diverse media: online journals, blogs and discussion forums. What are the affects of this kind of development, and how does it affect the style and form of writings, as well as the practices of evaluating art? How has the fastness of publishing changed the pace of writing about art? Is it possible for virtually anyone to be a critic, and what is the significance of expertise and specialisation today? And further, has online art criticism made changes upon the art market?
