access_un_limited: Visions of a Digital Archive Culture
Fri, 09.10.2009 10 am

The symposium “access_un_limited – Visions of a Digital Archive Culture” will discuss contemporary concepts and questions that have come up in conjunction with the archiving and presentation project “mediaartbase.de,” which is supported jointly by the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the German States Cultural Foundation. The ubiquitous spread of information and media via the Internet is faced with legal and ideological barriers. The symposium will primarily pursue the question of the extent to which producing, archiving, and evaluating institutions can deal with this contradiction without having to give up their vision of a fair treatment of valuable cultural assets.
