How will the artist website jodi.org be remembered? Eventually this artwork could be remembered within an art museum, but there has been a complicated relationship between the museum and Net.Art, in part because of the different memory strategies at play within each. This paper analyses strategies that the artists experiment with to keep jodi.org alive for now and with an eye on the future. This brings into view that it is important to rethink the division between communicative and cultural memory and hybridize memory processes as explained in both fields. How can this new epistemology of memory be applied within museum curatorial practice? This paper proposes the concept of ‘re-exhibiting’: developing various versions for display that strive to incorporate the communication within networks. The exhibition history shows the artwork as a changing entity; it can give insights in the DNA of the artwork and the memory strategies that can be applied to keep it alive.
