Since 2013, ACOnet has been committed in the field of net:art - multi-site performances in real time via high-speed networks and specific low latency technologies. In order to promote the exchange of experience and knowledge within the community, ACOnet has also launched the net:art coordination center some time ago. Thanks to the friendly support of Kapsch, this initiative can now be presented on a new, comprehensive website.

We invite you to explore the website www.netart.cc: Take a look at the documentation of our past productions, enjoy the videos and photo galleries and follow the progress of our ambitious new project "aaron's law"!
