   Detail information on symposium:
   By organizing the symposium (New)Media Art in Museums we wish to
   stimulate colleagues from the museum profession and artists towards
   reflection, writing and discussion on interesting and actual subject
   of new and digital media, the various means in which the latter are
   implemented into museum activities and art creation, as well as their
   influence in forming the views on contemporary world.

   The symposium's subject is defined, yet opened towards problematizing
   the experiences and insights from both theory and practice.

   We take special interest in the present state of artworks from the
   countries  of the symposium's participants, as well as in
   institutional interest and actual artists. We hope for the high number
   of participants  as it will enable us to develop discussion, provide
   practical examples and create conditions for quality comparison. We
   wish to reach conclusions on situation both within the region and

   We take special interest in discussing the following subjects:

   specialized museums of visual art
   -          institutions' relation  to (new)media museum items
   -          author's rights (author and collaborators...)
   -          relation between original and copy (the number of copies,
   -          conservatorial procedures that are applied when a
   (new)media artwork is endangered due to a process in which it happens
   to be (keeping, outdated technology)
