Launched in 2003 by founder Andrew Horwitz as a blog for Performance Space 122 and operating independently since 2007, Culturebot.org is a platform for discourse on and inspired by contemporary performing arts. Since its founding Culturebot has become a significant voice in the arts, taking as its mission the idea of critical horizontalism, a framework for arts engagement that proposes criticism as creative practice, reassesses spectatorship and engages with artists’ process over time. Culturebot pursues its mission online, through live events and special projects across platforms.
