Symposium on Digital Art Preservation at LIMA with Constant Dullaart and Harm van den Dorpel

The constant development and flux of technologies creates a unique opportunity for artists to experiment, play and create, but also presents a challenge for those charged with the responsibility of ensuring future presentations of these works. The preservation of and future access to born-digital art is as challenging as it is important. How to act on change? How to take control of future presentations?

In the context of the new LIMA project Art Host, the symposium ‘Transformation Digital Art 2018’ will take place at LIMA in Amsterdam. International participants from an array of professional backgrounds will ask what strategies can be developed in order to take artworks of an inherently digital, performative and processual nature into the future. Speakers will share best practices, research and cases studies concerning both artist-led and institutional strategies geared towards the future presentation of born-digital and software based art.


We are pleased to announce the following names of artists, conservators, researchers and curators who will contribute to the symposium: Karen Archey (Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam), Josephine Bosma, Ives Bernard (IMAL), Serena Cangiano (SUPSI), Louise Cone (National Gallery of Denmark), Annet Dekker (University of Amsterdam), Harm van den Dorpel (Artist), Constant Dullaart (Artist), Patrícia Falcão (Tate Modern), Paulien ‘t Hoen (SBMK), Aurora Loerakker (Van Abbemuseum), Geert Lovink (INC), Aymeric Mansoux (Artist), Rachel Somers Miles (LIMA), Arthur van Mourik (Centraal Museum), Geert Mul (Artist), Martine Neddam (Artist), Marcel Ras (NDE), Joost Rekveld (Artist), Morgane Stricot (ZKM), Sylvia van Schaik (RCE), Mila van der Weide (LIMA), Gaby Wijers (LIMA), and more.
