The ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART 2.0 is online!

Since its foundation in 1999, the Archive of Digital Art (former Database of Virtual Art) has become the most important scholarly online archive for media art. In cooperation with established media artists, researchers, and institutions, it has been documenting the rapidly evolving world of digital art and its related fields for more than a decade and today contains a selection of thousands of artwork at the intersection of art, science, and technology.

A New Tool Enables Collaborative Archiving
With two large international grants, the archive is evolving into a web 2.0 environment. The idea is to provide community features and user-oriented applications to enable a collective scientific exchange between artists, researchers and the public to foster interdisciplinary and global collaborative analysis and a proactive process of knowledge transfer.

Meta-Thesaurus Cross-links Media Art with Art History
Furthermore the archive’s rich data collection – based on a ‘concept of expanded documentation’ for media art – will be semantically cross-linked with classical art from the Renaissance to the present by a newly developed meta-thesaurus. This innovative tool will expedite the contextualisation of media art in art history and enable large-scale comparative image studies. The aim is to foster a better understanding and systematic integration of media art in scientific studies and cultural institutions.

Content Meets High Academic Standards
The collaboratively-compiled data gives a broad and vivid picture of the multifarious developments in digital art. ADA allows the upload of high resolution images, videos, academic texts, literature, and information on exhibition, technology etc. More than 500 artists selected from 5000 applicants offer the best selection of high quality work. To ensure the high academic and artistic level of the contributions, the prerequisite for becoming become a member is a minimum of five exhibitions and/or publications. The Advisory Board, represented by Christiane PAUL, Roy ASCOTT, Erkki HUHTAMO, Gunalan NADARAJAN, Martin ROTH a.o. guarantees the high standards of the archive. ADA already contains thousands of high quality artworks from most renowned artists such as:

Rebecca ALLEN, Suzanne ANKER, Cory ARCANGEL, Roy ASCOTT, Louis BEC, Maurice BENAYOUN, Paolo CIRIO, Charlotte DAVIES, FLEISCHMANN & STRAUSS, Masaki FUJIHATA, Ken GOLDBERG, Agnes HEGEDÜS, Lynn HERSHMAN LEESON, Ryoji IKEDA, Eduardo KAC, Ken RINALDO, KNOWBOTIC RESEARCH, Lev MANOVICH, George LEGRADY, Golan LEVIN, Rafael LOZANO-HEMMER, Joseph NECHVATAL, Michael NAIMARK, David ROKEBY, Jeffrey SHAW, Julius v. BISMARCK, Paul SERMON, Karl SIMS, SOMMERER & MIGNONNEAU, STANZA, Nicole STENGER, THOMSON & CRAIGHEAD, Peter WEIBEL etc..
