    Aims and Scope

    The digital revolution fundamentally changed how cultural heritage is created, documented, analyzed, and preserved. The book focuses on this transformation’s impact. How must museums and archives meet the challenges of digitally generated cultures and how does the digital revolution influence traditional object collection, research, and education? How do digital technologies and digital art and culture affect our interaction with images? Leading international experts from various disciplines break new ground. Pioneering interdisciplinary research results collected in this book are relevant to education, curators and archivists in the arts and culture sector and in the digital humanities.

    "This volume, in overlapping fields of museum and archive studies, introduces emerging questions of media art in terms of its rare and very often unsuccessful preservation. Eminent media theorists, including Sean Cubitt, Erkki Huhtamo, Ryszard W. Kluszczyński, or curators such as Documenta XI curator Okwui Enwezor and Transmediale director Andreas Broeckmann, contribute to this crucial theme."

    "Surely an ultimate source for the topic of media art musealisation and archivisation, as its best-known theorists and curators, this book will find place in university libraries, being a good compendium of topics for students in art history as well as in museology, but also in museums, where this critical knowledge is more than critical in practice."
