Since 1989, the birth year of the World Wide Web, the art world has been grappling with the rise of net culture. Phaidon’s book Internet_Art: From the Birth of the Web to the Rise of NFTs surveys the groundbreaking artists who have engaged with the net culture over the past three decades and explores the impact of the Internet on art production and consumption, taking readers on a journey from the first browser-based art to the recent explosion of NFT art.

 

This unprecedented survey of artists and innovators from 1989 to the present is interwoven with the personal narrative of one of the leaders of the digital world, Dr. Omar Kholeif. Weaving the history of the Internet with his own personal recollections, Kholeif takes readers on a behind-the-scenes journey of an art world grappling with the rise of the online world: from the boardrooms of museums, artists’ studios, and biennials around the globe to cyberspace, the metaverse, and beyond.
