Samenvatting: 

A website developed by the Matters in Media Art Project, a collaborative project started in 2003 by a consortium of curators, conservators, registrars and media technical managers from the New Art Trust, MoMA, SFMOMA and Tate. Its goal is to provide guidelines for care of time-based media works of art (e.g., video, film, audio and computer based installations). The project aims to raise awareness of the requirements of these works and to provide a practical response to the need for international agreement among museums. The site currently offers guidance in two areas: acquisition and loans. It includes downloadable templates for use during critical information gathering periods in all phases of these two areas.

Beoordeling: 

The site is designed to aid artists, collectors and dealers and museums. It is particularly valuable for its practical, operational level guidance, offered in a clearly structured manner. The information and templates are useful for small as well as large institutions.
