  • Globally Connecting New Media Art Archives: Progress, Goals and Challenges

Presentation Subtheme:

  • Symbiotic Organizations




  • The Connecting New Media Art Archives project has been developing a methodology to enable the sharing of information between currently ‘siloed’ online repositories of New Media Art. With representatives from institutions across the globe, this panel will share the results so far, as well as highlight the challenges encountered and lessons learned.

    Creating meaningful connections between new media art archives involves technical innovation, overcoming logistical barriers and consorted collaborative effort. Although the pilot project initially involves five institutions, the goal is to pave the way for other new media art archives to join the world-wide network of open access interconnected archives.
