Public Netbase / t0 (by the Institute for New Culture Technologies /t0) was founded by Konrad Becker and Francisco de Sousa Webber in the Vienna Museumsquartier in 1995 as a non-profit internet provider and a platform for the participatory use of information and communication technology.

Public Netbase organizes exhibitions, events, symposia and workshops. Since 1998, it has attracted more than 75.000 visitors. The net culture institute provides more than 1200 artists, cultural workers, adolescents, project groups, and initiatives with e-mail accounts, web space, fully equipped project work spaces, proficient technical support and the transfer of technology know-how, thus enabling them to actively participate in the shaping of the World Wide Web and global data structures.

With its WWW-server that attracts more than 1,7 million visits per month as well as with its numerous workshops, instruction courses, and educational events for the broad public, Public Netbase contributes continually to the evolution of a lively internet scene and a heightened consciousness for the implications of the new communication and information technologies. As a focal point of European and international art, culture, and media networks, the Viennese net culture institute attempts to develop an understanding for the manifold opportunities and the potential of new communication media, but also to look critically at a society that is increasingly determined by technology.
