International symposium on the preservation of born-digital / software based art
Op 8 en 9 februari organiseert LIMA een symposium over het duurzaam beheer van digitale kunst.Over het symposium:
"Digital artworks find their way more and more into public collections. Museums, collectors and archives see themselves increasingly confronted with the questions and challenges related to presenting and preserving digital art. Technological environments, such as hardware and software, are constantly changing. Artworks adapt or perish. Collections do not yet have much experience in dealing with these type of artworks; artists and producers do, but their focus lies not in archiving. How to bridge this gap? Through collaborations between artists, museums and archival professionals, scholars and collections we want to share our knowledge. What new strategies can we develop in order for born-digital art to become future proof?
In the scope of the collaborative research project ‘FUTURE PROOF Media Art’ with Dutch media artist Geert Mul, in which LIMA researches software based artworks and interactive media artworks by Mul, the two-day symposium ‘FUTURE PROOF!? Transformation Digital Art 2017’ will take place, on February 8 and 9 at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam.
We are pleased to announce the following names of artists, conservators, researchers and curators who will contribute to the symposium; Jon Ippolito (Professor of New Media, University of Maine), Geert Nm Mul (artist), Jochem Van Der Spek (artist), Sabine Himmelsbach (HeK, Basel), Gaby Wijers (LIMA), Rachel S.
