Proposal for the Establishment of an International Association for Media Arts Sustainability
We propose to establish an international association for all those engaged in the preservation, conservation, documentation, and long-term access to media art.
For a complex range of reasons, many works of media art can no longer be presented, and their histories are disappearing without a trace.
This association will promote collaboration and advocate the sustainability, understanding and appreciation of media art heritage. It will:
provide and foster channels of communication
encourage peer exchange
share tools and ways of working
identify and engage with new challenges
promote new ways of understanding media art
provide inspiration and resources for curators, artists, and scholars
help build new audiences
recognize and build upon existing knowledge and resources
