Documentation — a work's physical remnant or trace —is created and used in different ways, depending on its use, perspective and timing. In performance and digital art, documentation has become the focus of conservation and presentation strategies. What can be learned from other practices within and outside of the scope of the museum?

These workshops were meant to form part of our annual symposium Transformation Digital Art in March 2020, but as this was not possible, the workshops are offered online.
