Science and Media Art with high-calibre experts - the DANUBE TELELECTURES.
The discussion will be recorded by several cameras and transmitted live
over the www.


Online viewers can participate live in the discussion via email.

“Myths of Immateriality: Curating, Collection and Archiving Media Art”

During the last decades media art has grown to be the art of our time,
though it has hardly arrived in our cultural institutions. The mainstream
of art history has neglected developing adequate research tools for
these contemporary art works, they are exhibited infrequently in museums,
and there are few collectors.
Media art is hardly being archived and systematically preserved like
ancient and traditional forms of art.
This loss of data our society is facing because of the change in storage
media and operational systems threatens to result in a total loss of our
contemporary digital art. Which practices and strategies in the
curating and documenting of media art do experts in the field suggest?
