My name is Annette Doms. As an art historian, I am interested in the time when art arises. In this blog I will talk about the changes in the art market and provide insights into the production, situation and reception of art in the age of the digital revolution.
With my company ICAA (Independent Contemporary Art Advisor) we operate in the fields of the art market, art collections and art consulting. 2014 I realized the UNPAINTED media art fair.
And with the young artists prize ARTWARD I promote young artists since 2010 and give them a platform so that they can be found.

Big Data, Cloud, Facebook and Twitter: digital media and networks shape the society of the 21st century. The digital is omnipresent.
Whether confident and naturally practiced and received, or self-limited or self-liberated criticized and discussed by the other: life without internet is not imaginable for both sides. Or, as my nephew wants to know in 2012: “Grandpa, back in times you had no computer. How did you actually went to the internet?”
My mission is to report on these new developments in the production of art and the art market.
