If the art fairs are considered as networks, a key issue on contemporary scene is the lack of a reliable network for the exchange of information, an accessible, filtered and protected database for sharing, where gallery owners, artists, collectors and archives, each with their own skills, can contribute to a sudden communication and verification of information.
