Die neue Top-Level-Domain .ART verspricht im Internet Exklusivitat fur die Kunstwelt. Setzt sie sich durch?

Cela commence a se repandre comme une trainee de poudre.

Depuis le 10 mai, l’extension de nom de do- maine .art est accessible à tous.

.ART has been joined by Amazon, Walmart, Gagosian Gallery, Palazzo Strozzi, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Swatch Group…

Since the launch of .ART General Availability (GA) on 10th May, the museum community on the art world’s exclusive domain has multiplied registering about 50 new names.

Domein Naam

A domain name is an identification string that can be your personal permanent identifier on the internet.

April 21st marked the 9th edition of Rhizome’s Seven on Seven Conference, which pairs seven leading artists with seven visionary technologists, and challenges them to make something new — an artwork, a prototype, whatever they imagine.

.ART aspires to be much more than just another domain name – a digital platform for the art world. Our list of adopters speaks for itself. Such well known institutions and individuals as Guggenheim, Tate, Centre Pompidou, Louvre and Olafur Eliasson have joined .ART right after its conception.


By investing in the domain, .art, Ulvi Kasimov hopes to bring digital order to a market that can suffer from mystery, forgery, and an aversion to new technological tools.

No matter what your creative personality, you can now join .ART’s early adopters.
