The DOCAM Research Alliance ?

For more than 50 years, the use and integration of technology in art practices has greatly changed the cultural landscape and has prompted us to review and adapt our conservation and documentation methods. The work and results of DOCAM demonstrate that the preservation of media art requires that its particular characteristics be taken into account. The mission of the DOCAM Research Alliance has been to identify and implement five research axes and propose tools, guides and methods that contribute to the preservation of the media arts heritage. The axes are conservation, documentation, cataloguing, history of technologies and terminology.
