Transformation Digital Art 2021
Transformation Digital Art symposium is designed as an opportunity to share best practices concerning both artist-led and institutional strategies geared towards the future presentation of born-digital and software-based art. This year the focus of the symposium will be on Documenting Digital Art.
In performance and digital art, documentation has become the focus of conservation and presentation strategies. These artistic practices also challenge existing forms of documentation, resulting in new ways of thinking about documentation. What can be learned from other practices within and outside of the scope of the museum? Transformation Digital Art 2021 aims to show and discuss existing and new strategies for the documentation, transmission, and preservation of digital art for and by artists, curators and conservators.
This year's symposium will be presented online.
Transformation Digital Art 2021 explores the history of the field of media art and digital art documentation with lectures by guest speakers. The daily programme includes workshops for sharing museum practises and closes with artist presentation and discussions. Between the workshop and the artist presentation and panel discussion, very short challenges will be presented highlighting current research in documenting, archiving and preserving digital art at LIMA and partner institutions.
