Op 24 en 25 september 2015 vindt in Aachen, Duitsland, de internationale conferentie Video Matters plaats. De conferentie is onderdeel van het onderzoeksproject Video Archive. De voertaal is Engels.Over de conferentie:
"The conference reflects on current challenges in the documentation, care and presentation of time-based art. The interest which museums and cultural heritage institutions have shown in this art form in the course of the last decades has been accompanied by technical changes and technological obsolescence, both of which have become fundamental issues for collections. Digitization as an archiving tool has strongly influenced the way of handling video and other media. Diverging opinions have surfaced both in the discussion on how best to ensure the survival of such endangered works and concerning modes of presentation, ranging from reconstruction to re-invention.
Three interdisciplinary rounds of discussions (the archive, the collection, the exhibition) will bring together professionals from Europe and the US to give an opportunity to present their projects to an interested audience and to evaluate their thoughts and concerns in shared debates among colleagues. The conference concludes with the 4th edition of “Archiving Media Art: Politics and Strategies”, a round table by GAMA (The Gateway of Archives of Media Art), an international knowledge and project sharing group."
