Networked Archives
Ars Electronica Festival

10.09.2020, 16:45 – 18:00 Uhr
Ars Electronica New World Channel

Wir leben in einer Welt, in der wir zunehmend auf Online-Inhalte angewiesen sind, Medienkunstarchive und -plattformen sind dabei keine Ausnahme. Das Panel Networked Archives befasst sich mit deren Rolle bezüglich dem Online-Zugang zu Medienkunst und beleuchtet verschiedene Ansätze in diesem Bereich. Archive und Metadaten sind zentrale Themen und die Grundlage für digitale Inhalte, weshalb sie sich zu wichtigen Online-Wertschöpfungsketten entwickeln. Wie können Archive monetarisiert werden, zu den Entwicklungen auf den Medienkunstmärkten beitragen und die Grundlage für Online-Plattformen bilden? Nach kurzen Präsentationen der TeilnehmerInnen zu aktuellen Projekten und Überlegungen, werden Fragen zu Zugänglichkeit und Attraktivität, Mehrwert und notwendigen gemeinsamen Herangehensweisen erörtert.

Speakers: Oliver Grau (DE), Dagmar Schink (AT), Christiane Paul (DE/US), Mariano Sardón (AR), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (MX/CA).
Moderation: Manuela Naveau (AT)

Vor der Podiumsdiskussion wird Rafael Lozano-Hemmer einen Vortrag halten, in dem er über die Rolle von KünstlerInnen im Prozess der Archivierung von Medienkunst reflektiert und anschließend in diese Debatte einsteigen.
