Net Art Pioneer's First Show in a Decade


Wolfgang Staehle, a pioneer in the field of Net art, will have his first solo exhibition in New York in a decade at Postmasters Gallery, a venue that specializes in new media art. A native of Stuttgart, Germany, Staehle relocated to New York in 1976, where he worked as a video artist. In 1991 he founded THE THING, an independent bulletin board system (BBS). It became one of the first online forums for new media art. Stay tuned to see what Staehle will present to the offline public at Postmasters.
