Creating “Facebook for Aesthetics”

„Facebook for aesthetics“ is how German newspaper „Die Zeit“ described our online community Independent Collectors when we first launched the site in June 2008. We find that description a bit pretentious, but we will say that we are the world's largest open-source platform of privately owned art.
