“ISEA Symposium Archives: From the Past to the Present” presented by Wong, van der Plas, Mitchell and Searleman


Presentation Title:

  • ISEA Symposium Archives: From the Past to the Present




  • This institutional presentation focuses on the ISEA Archives team’s efforts in creating its online repositories to preserve the records of the ISEA Symposium series, a nomadic international cultural exchange experience over the last four decades: archiving the contributors and their works, including the documentation of the papers, artistic creations, presentations, exhibitions, performances, concerts, workshops, cultural events, and the symposium organisation itself. Moreover, the international volunteer team working on it has created one of the world’s largest archives of new media art documentation and theory. Over the last few years, the ISEA Archives have actively initiated worldwide connections among stakeholders in the new media art archiving community.
