Abstract (long paper)
Now that more than 40 years of electronic art history have passed, it is generally agreed that museums and art institutions are facing a serious problem in respect to the preservation of works of media art. A large number of historical media art works are currently disappearing due to the technical as well as organizational difficulties that their maintenance entails. While this might seem to be a problem that is only of concern for art historians and archiving specialists, artists and creative practitioners will also have to play a role in the development of practical solutions and innovative concepts to deal with the issue of decay and conservation.
