Note on why publications prior to the 2011 Fall season spell RTiVISS in the place of the actual ARTiVIS

The project started as RTiVISS. By interviewing and observing installation participants we recognized the relevance to make the name understandable and memorable to all cultures. ARTIVIS became then the final version that keeps the essence of the concept, bringing additional evidence on the connection of arts with an activist approach.
