Course objectives
The course reflects the complex problem of archiving a new media work of art. The aim is to introduce students to the reality of collection institutions, their relationship with authors on the one hand, and the demands of care and protection for selected works on the other. It uses the platforms of the current research plan of the Olomouc Museum of Art: New Media Museums. It deals with the Central European context and tries to put it in a general context. Students have a unique opportunity to follow the course of research from the position of an insider, ask questions and contribute to the solution of specific problem moments
Learning outcomes
After completing the course, the student can orientate within current approaches to the archiving of new media work. During the course, he is guided to test his existing theoretical knowledge, verify their applicability, to apply them in identifying and resolving possible conflicts (authenticity/documentation, originality/duplication, etc.). The course is taught by foreign experts, thus gaining awareness of the more general context of collection practice.
