USArtBerlin launches a new listserve mailing list per request of our members.
We are growing! After careful consideration of our member needs we are moving to a Listserve, while still being a secure service for members only. The forum was a safe and inventive opportunity to interact online, but the majority requested easier digital communication. If demand is re-asserted by members, we reserve the right to reinstate the forum at a later time.
This listserve mailing list can be used to publicize exhibitions, publications, presentations, events, and any services you might also offer alongside your art practice and scholarly activity, such as translation, editing, photography, design, music recording, teaching, etc. The listserve to be about you and your needs.
Once the listserve is up and running, you’ll receive information by email. You can manage your own subscription and can cancel at any time. All past conversation and services offered on the forum will be archived and securely encrypted offline.
Kind Regards, USArtBerlin Administration

NPR Berlin Review: ’ArtFacts.net’: The Methodology And Controversy Of Marek Claasson
by ABIGAIL WICK
“Quality,” Claasson says, “is the most used term in the art world, rendering its (application for art-object appraisal) effectively meaningless.” Rather than art investors basing their decisions on flimsy qualitative hunches, he touts his product a means to let buyers “see art through spreadsheets.”
But his methodology, which fails to account for galleries that haven’t paid a registration fee with ArtFacts.net, art fairs, publications, or auction sales, has caused a storm of controversy regarding the accuracy of his ranking system.
