Hieronder vindt je het programma en alle informatie over de conferentie (in Engels).

As part of the research project "Video Archive" – funded by the Volkswagen Foundation – the Ludwig Forum Aachen will host the conference "Video Matters" on September 24 and 25, 2015. The "Video Archive" project is devoted to the scholarly reappraisal and presentation of the Ludwig Forum's historical video collection. Together with colleagues from Europe and the USA, we would like to open up an interdisciplinary round of discussions and compare experiences about the specific requirements for archiving, preserving, collecting and presenting time-based media in the course of technological obsolescence and technical developments. In addition, the Ludwig Forum will host "Archiving Media Art: Politics and Strategies", the 4th public round table of GAMA (The Gateway to Archives of Media Art), an international knowledge and project sharing group on media archiving.
