Abstract:

  • ePPA – Espacio/ Plataforma de preservación audiovisual (ePPA – Space/ Platform for Audiovisual preservation) aims at making Lima Art Museum (MALI) and Hi-Andean Technology’s (ATA) video art collections available to a wider audience. By creating a platform, the project provides remote users with descriptive information of the artworks, and museum visitors with full access to the collection of video art. This paper discusses the challenges faced by the project in creating a platform that would work as a comprehensive database and, at the same time, would narrate the possible histories of video art in Peru.
