Media Art Preservation Symposium, Budapest

The Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest is organising a symposium on media conservation, specifically intended for professionals. 7-8 December 2015

The lifetime of media artworks – such as photo, video, film, digital art, internet based and other digital contents – is significantly shorter than that of artworks made with traditional techniques (paintings, statues, monuments etc.).

Compared to artworks preserved in museums, the obsolescence of technical devices is considerably faster. Media artworks belong to our cultural heritage. However, such a changing environment requires different preservation strategies for long-term sustainability as opposed to traditional painting, statue and object prevention processes.

Methodology of archiving, collecting, presenting, conserving media art as well as specialised professional training are entirely new fields for professionals working in Hungarian public collections.
