Location Description
Online via Zoom

Lecture as part of the lecture series Best Available Copy 4 - the preservation of time-based media art ... documentation as a copy at the Institute for Conservation-Restoration.

Documentation has become ubiquitous, moving from a way to reflect a past life of an artwork or event, as a copy, a repetition or a derivative, into a practice capable of changing the status of the artwork. In this sense documentation not only future-proofs but also relentlessly (re-)invents and (re-)becomes the artwork.
