Digitale cultuur voor de toekomst

Arie Altena wrote a short essay on the value of digital art as heritage for the Network Archives Design and Digital Culture.

Here's the introduction in translation:

'Digital culture is of today, and it has a future. But digital culture also has a past that stretches back decades. What do we know about it? What can we still know about it? In the context of NADD, web and archive editor Arie Altena of V2_Lab for the Unstable Media is part of the Network & Tools Working Group, which mapped out which knowledge parties exist and what expertise they represent. In this text, he explores how knowledge of the past can help explain the current situation and, from there, contribute to the development of follow-up steps. What we know of the past depends on what we can remember and on the material we have preserved. According to Altena, an archive therefore houses a wealth of possible new perspectives that can be activated at any moment.
