Are you born-digital? This could be the ultimate, decisive question in the future when it comes to preserving and making the art of our time accessible for future generations. This book presents the results of the »digital art conservation« project that was conceptualized and implemented at the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe beginning in 2010. It includes text contributions by leading theorists, restorers, programmers, and artists as well as case studies. It is designed to foster the international debate on the preservation of digital art.
With contributions by Edmond Couchot, Alain Depocas, Johannes Gfeller, Sabine Himmelsbach, Anne Laforet, Aymeric Mansoux, Antoni Muntadas, Jussi Parikka, Bernhard Serexhe, Peter Weibel, and Siegfried Zielinski.
