Technological Arts Preservation

Sakıp Sabancı Museum, Sakıp Sabancı Cad 42, Emirgan 34467 Istanbul

Sabancı University is introducing a new research project titled ‘Technological Arts Preservation’, led by Sakıp Sabancı Museum’s archive and research space, digitalSSM. Artwork collections gradually branch out to include works produced using technologies including video, sound, image, code, virtual or augmented reality, kinetic, digital or physical hybridity. These artworks are also dependent on software and hardware technologies regarding their representation. Considering the rapid changes in technology, the question as to how these artworks will be conserved for the future emerges as a challenging issue for all institutions shouldering the responsibility of preserving cultural legacy.

The project is the result of a collaboration of scholars, new media and digital art conservators, software engineers, researchers, art world professionals and information managers from institutions including Berlin University of the Arts, Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (ZKM), Rhizome, Sabancı University, Sakıp Sabancı Museum and the Tate.

On 13 December, there will be two talks related to the project at Sakıp Sabancı Museum:

14.00: Prof. Dr. Siegfried Zielinski, ‘PRO-SPECTIVE ARCHAEOLOGIES: Travelling through DEEP TIME OF THE MEDIA into to Possible Futures’

15:00: Daniel Heiss, Morgane Stricot and Matthieu Vlaminck from ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Germany and PAMAL Group (Preservation & Art - Media Archeology Lab), Austria, France, Germany, ‘Media Archaeological Reconstruction of Media and Digital Artworks: Practical Case-Studies’
