Today’s networked society offers us many wondrous possibilities of information, communication, mobility, and flexibility. It also has a latent side effect: it makes the world “flat”. Time-honoured hierarchies, traditions, elites and canons are subject to erosive movements. In such a flattened, “horizontal” world, art institutions are finding it difficult to survive. After all, institutions such as these traditionally represent “verticality” – historic profundity, tradition, values, dignity, and certainty.
