Talking Back to the Media in 1985 combined playful interventions with a critique of the current mass media and was led by international artists such as John Baldessari, Barbara Kruger, Raul Marroquin, David Garcia, General Idea, Sebastián Lopez and Hans Haacke, to name but a few.
In opdracht van het Netwerk Digitaal Erfgoed (NDE) werkprogramma Houdbaar, onderzocht LIMA in 2015 en 2016 de archivering voor cd-rom kunstwerken. Mede hiermee neemt LIMA deel aan de te ontwikkelen samenhangende en sectoroverstijgende infrastructuur voor born-digital erfgoed.
As part of the project Generic Workflows Born Digital Heritage, Gaby Wijers (LIMA) and Hannah Bosma (CCDD) investigated the needs and wishes for preservation of born digital heritage, and the (im)possibilities of joining the evolving national digital infrastructure, in a research led by Robert Gillesse (Foundation DEN).
The central questions for the future presentation and conservation of any work coming into a museum collection are “What are we acquiring?” and “What do we need to preserve?”. With digital artworks, the answers to these questions prove to be complicated. The project 'Transformatie Digitale Kunst' is concerned with sustainable preservation of born-digital art.
LIMA stores, preserves and archives the media artworks from several museums, academies, individuals and corporations, and supports and advises them in the storage, digitisation and presentation of video art and digital artworks. Which collections are this, and how does this cooperation look like?
