Workshop and Launch of the GAMA Portal


During Ars Electronica

Kunstuniversität, Kollegiumgasse 2
5. September 2009, 14.00- 17.30 Uhr

Archives and collections of media art are closely related to the institution’s profile and mandate. Within the workshop experts discuss the significance of the institutional setting with respect to the creation of the repositories and their future perspectives. Additionally, on the basis of recent research activities, experts and artists present new ways of documentation of media art which tend to integrate the user experience into a documentation strategy for media art works - or even into the works themselves. On this occasion the new European online portal, the Gateway to Archives of Media Art (GAMA), is launched and presented.
