Cultural Heritage in the Digital Age



Resurrection Lab is a new project initiated by iMAL to answer to the current issues surrounding Cultural Heritage in the Digital Age. The project aims to develop methodologies, tools and techniques for preserving born-digital art as well as providing public access to it.



In the continuation of their 2015 collaborative program on Cultural Heritage in the Digital Age, iMAL and Packed announce the first international symposium in Brussels on the issues of preservation of born-digital culture and of its public access. The symposium proposes a unique panel of thinkers and doers, archivists, curators, media theorists, artists, conservators and researchers who will share for and with art and culture professionals their vision and experience.


iMAL and PACKED - Centre of Expertise in Digital Heritage, are organising a 2-days workshop and 1-day open atelier on the handling of obsolete data carriers and computer hardware, with Ben Fino-Radin, Digital Repository Manager at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Vincent Leclaire from Sicilium.


An exceptional lecture by Bob Stein, one of the major and pioneering actors in electronic publishing and founder of The Voyager Company and the Institute for the Future of the Book. The lecture will be followed by a round table debate, moderated by Emanuel Lorrain (PACKED) and Morgane Batoz-Herges (PILen) and with the participation of Etienne Mineur (éditions volumiques), Pierre Lavoie (former Hyptique), Eric Swenson (NEA), Jean-Louis Boissier and Yves Bernard (former Magic Media, iMAL).



Welcome to the Future! proposes a historical selection of art & culture cd-roms and electronic artworks published on floppies, mostly produced in the 90s highlighting the short life of born-digital art. It presents early pioneering works in new media and digital arts, conveying many visions and utopias around the upcoming digital world as well as remarkable explorations of interactive digital media.


Yves will participate to this symposium at ESAD Valence-Grenoble on March 2-4 with Bob Stein, Catherine Dixon, Ryan Nadel, Jan Barth and Yves Citton.
