blog away - a blog exhibition? 
Karl Nyberg - the second half of Sarts - A Critical Point of View pointed out in his more or less last post in their blog project is that the project was ment to be a low-tech, or rather low prestige (as in no prominence and importance). The debates on the blog have becommed more and more serious and this makes me think:
what is a blog for the contemporary art world? - do you really want a blog to be seen? if not, then why put your thoughts online?
but it seems that many uses the publishing tools that the blog's can offer to do certain projects and that is acctually interesting. I would like to do a blog-project.
not so much into contemporary art is tryign to understand net-art, or make net art do bad contemporary art (a interview I did with him, Anton Vidokle of e-flux, pointed out to me that a lot of net art is not very interesting - and what they did - and are doing at e-flux is relating to other subjects but on the net ).
also the german Kunst Blog is using these tools to do something else (more or less a magazine for texts on art).

It is a sad day indeed... 
the best nordic blog on contemporary art and art criticism Sarts - in swedish - is closing down. The main player, Rikard Ekholm, is glad to have done this as a project. but as he states in his last post states, he has to concentrate on other projects...

more about Art in Nordland 
During the project Artistic Interruptions, Art in Nordland has produced 18 new projects, some of them moving into documentary. Several of them is stirring quite some debates either internaly in the municipality where they are done others by the artists themself
(one project is defined as a failure by the artist and one artist closed her project). The one most debated is the project by the Norse duo Charlotte Thiis Evensen and Lisa Karlsson and their project in Nyksund. The unusual situation at hand is that the producer of the documentary film (art in nordland) would like the film stopped from being shown.

One can follow the debate on the norwegian version of th website only.
