Professor of Art and Technology Studies Eduardo Kac's 1985 work Reabracadabra is featured in an exhibition The Art Happens Here: Net Art’s Archival Poetics at the New Museum, reports the New York Times in a recent article titled "The Art of the Internet, Restored and Out in the World." The New Museum show commemorates the completion of Net Art Anthology, a two-year online exhibition curated by Rhizome, which presents 100 artworks from net art history.

Kac's Reabracadabra is "a digital poem created for Videotexto that he [Kac] described as a “personal, formal attempt at holographic work.”  Kac went on to say, “There’s a general misperception when we talk about online culture. Everyone is so obsessed with the internet, but to me it’s a historical phenomenon. It will be superseded by other networks in the future.” Read the full article on the New York Times website.
