1 CONT3XT.NET was a Vienna-based initiative by Sabine Hochrieser, Michael Kargl, Birgit Rinagl, and Franz Thalmair. Departing from the idea of the context as the most uncertain and fluctuating yet decisive constraint of any given situation, the main focus of their activities from 2006 to 2012 was to reflect upon the variability of Internet-based art by synthesizing curatorship, editorial practices, theory, and art production.
