What is this thing, this Post? It is a platform for critical response, and a constantly evolving space for sharing research and testing ideas. Post was created by staff members at the Museum of Modern Art in New York to allow people to share texts, images, and videos in the hope that "multiple narratives of art's histories emerge." Along the top section of the homepage, users will find areas like Contents, Themes, Latest, and Participants. Browsing the Themes area. visitors can look over posts on the Fluxus network that existed between New York and Tokyo in the 1960s or the intriguing post examining how archival artworks form a key part of museum culture. Moving on, the Latest area includes a few gems, including mediations on the spatial poems of Shiomi Mieko and a reflection on the term "Latin American Conceptualism." As another consideration, passers-by are also encouraged to leave their own thoughts on each of these intriguing contemplations of what "modern" art means.
