ArtHost End report

Blog post

The ArtHost project (LIMA in cooperation with DullTech) examines how to deal with contemporary works of art that depend on dynamic, digital technology, in particular web-based artworks. Central to this research is the question of how these works can be stored, documented and accessible for the longer term. The development of a method for the preservation of net art is still in its infancy. With this research, LIMA wants to contribute to the development of guidelines for conservation and management of net art, and develop a methodology for preservation. In addition, the aim is to make artists more aware of conservation issues and to involve them in the preservation of their work.

The ArtHost project investigates a total of 20 web-based works of art, a large part of which were made by Constant Dullaart, with whom LIMA collaborates in this research project.
