Are you born-digital? This could be the ultimate, decisive question in the future when it comes to preserving and making the art of our time accessible for future generations. The book presents the results of the digital art conservation project that was conceived at the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe in 2010. It includes text contributions by major theorists, restorers, programmers, and artists as well as case studies. It is designed to foster the international debate on the conservation of digital art. With contributions by Edmond Couchot, Alain Depocas, Johannes Gfeller, Sabine Himmelsbach, Anne Laforet, Aymeric Mansoux, Antoni Muntadas, Jussi Parikka, Bernhard Serexhe, Peter Weibel, Siegfried Zielinski, and many others.
