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:
