Presentation Title:

  • Electronic Art Archives Platform, A Round Table Discussion

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • his panel session is a continuation of an initiative taken at ISEA2018 in which a roundtable of practitioners and academics from around the globe participated in the discussion. The topics for this panel include the continued discussion of:

    1) How to equitably, comprehensively, and legally capture the content of past symposia, exhibitions, and performances and 2) Co-operation of existing online electronic art/new media archives for the purpose of creating a comprehensive archive. As well as these issues the meeting identified other critical topics including:

    1. Institutional and electronic hosting
    2. Funding, grant writing
    3. Development of archive toolkit
    4. Standards for archive inclusion (difference in value systems for art and science)

    The aim is not to solve all these questions, but to bring cooperation (and implicitly, the work on these issues) a step further.
