CHRISTIANE PAUL (New York): From Archives to Collections: Digital Art in/out of Institutions


Christiane PAUL explores the complexities behind this "state of the art world," outlining the conceptual and practical challenges that digital art presents to institutions and the art market in terms of archiving, contextualization, and preservation. Also discussed will be the frameworks of collections vs. archives that can adapt to the changing requirements of the mutable digital "records" they contain; the suitability of museums vs. other organizations in documenting and archiving different types of digital art; and possible infrastructural changes that could assist in supporting the art form.


Christiane PAUL (Whitney Museum, New School, NY) is one of the most influential curators of media art. Since the 1990s, she developed countless exhibitions. Recently she prepared INDAF Digital Art Festival (Inchon, South Korea, 2009), Eduardo Kac: Biotopes (Rio de Janeiro, 2010), Cory Arcangel: Pro Tools (New York, 2011), The Public Private (Kellen Gallery, The New School, 2013) and Scalable Relations (California, 2009). Paul is professor at the New School, NY and leads the ‘Media Studies Graduate Program’. Digital Art (Thames & Hudson 2003, 2008, 2015) and Context Providers: Conditions of Meaning in Media Arts (Intellect, 2011) are already classics in the field.
