Photos: by Thomas Dreher and Art & Language (the archives of Michael Baldwin and Mel Ramsden), if no other photographers' names, artists' names or sources are indicated [The unsatisfactory image-quality of some color illustrations is the result of a combination of the low photo-resolution for the web 1.0 (before DSL) distribution and a digitisation of slides photographed by Thomas Dreher with coarse-grained ASA 400 color films in interior spaces without flashlight and tripod. The disadvantages of this combination are clearly recognisable if the illustrations present text. If the artists (Art & Language: Michael Baldwin and Mel Ramsden) were not able to help with alternative illustrations the slides were used as irreplaceable historical documents.]

Alterations of the web address: "Thomas Dreher: Intermedia Art" was installed in Mai 1999 as a website with the URL address http://mitglied.tripod.de/ThomasDreher and redirected since an unknown date by the provider to the URL address http://mitglied.lycos.de/ThomasDreher. Since 2003 the provider Lycos integrated a column for ads on the right side. The site http://mitglied.lycos.de/ThomasDreher existed for a while because of numerous links and entries in search systems, before it was deleted by the provider. After a friendly offer by Johannes Auer (netzliteratur.net) "Thomas Dreher: Intermedia Art" was reinstalled on another server in 2004 at the URL address http://dreher.netzliteratur.net (current version, without advertisement).

The author can not predict changings of external websites addressed by links. The author is forced to distance himself from the content of linked web pages because of the German "Haftung für Links" ("liability concerning links").
