INDEPENDENT ART THEORY + COMMENTARY AMPLIFIED.
MINIMALISM IS MAXIMALISM. PRETENSION IS PERFECTION.
Founded in 1989 when ASCII + ANSI art, MOD music files and .NFO text files were all the rage. From 1989 to 1995, ARTNFO existed as a text file e-zine focused on the digital avant-garde: ASCII/ANSI art, the demoscene (at the time predominantly Western European, with German demo artists producing the most innovative and bleeding edge avant-garde works), experimental interactive fiction and other forms of digital and electronic art hacking.
In 2019, we are resurrecting ARTNFO into a brave new world where the tyranny of art and media monoculture and mediocrity reign supreme. We represent an avant-garde resistance against this cultural insanity and seek to introduce new generations of both established and aspiring creators to art beyond the limitations of blue chip banality and globalist corporate totalitarianism.
