The complex architectures of the new “memory palaces”, from libraries, archives and museums to the IT structures, databases and server farms that feed the flow of data on the network. The transitional situation that we are experiencing, which brings together a book culture with a culture of the screen, is gradually shifting us from a graphic reason to a computational one. In the same way that writing has made it possible to generate a particular mode of thought, where lists, tables and formulas have played a primordial role in the modeling of knowledge. With digital technology, other systems of knowledge ...

There is no doubt that we live in exciting times: Ours is the age of many ‘silent revolutions’ triggered by startups and research labs of big IT companies; revolutions that quietly and profoundly alter the world we live in. Another ten or five years, and self-tracking will be as normal and inevitable as having a Facebook account or a mobile phone. Our bodies, hooked to wearable devices sitting directly at or beneath the skin, will constantly transmit data to the big aggregation in the cloud. Permanent recording and automatic sharing will provide unabridged memory, both shareable and analyzable. The digitization ...

It is hard to avoid the feeling these days that the future is behind us. It’s not so much that time has stopped, but rather that the sense of promise and purpose that once drove historical progress has become impossible to sustain. On the one hand, the faith in modernist, nationalist, or universalist utopias continues to retreat, while on the other, a more immediate crisis of faith has accompanied the widespread sense of diminishing economic prospects felt in so many places. Not to mention the ascension of populist and sectarian orders that now mire many of the popular revolutions of ...

Seventy years after the death of the originator, his or her works become public intellectual property; they are in the public domain and so belong to the public. This effects not just medieval texts, but also 20th century books and works. Thanks to digitization the treatment of these works has taken on a whole new dynamism. For museums, libraries, archives and galleries, the public domain is a challenge, but also an opportunity for the whole cultural sector. This book explains the copyright fundamentals of the public domain and discusses the difficulties involved in implementing it in the everyday functioning of cultural ...

Unfold experiments with the digital folder as a space for curatorial and artistic inquiry. Unfold is an online library of folders in motion, progressively generated by invited guest curators. One after the other they will expand, reorganize and reshape the library engendering new research perspectives. Each Unfold issue hosts shifting constellations of artistic content, books, found objects and software, both newly commissioned and already existing. Like all libraries, this is a space of copies, copies of copies, appropriations, heterogeneity and contradictions. Unfold manifests itself as one transmuting folder to be disclosed and navigated. Its previous stages are preserved as ZIP files. These archived ...

Digitization carries the utopian promise of archival access unlimited by constraints of space and time, and with it, of new forms of research and historiographies. In reality, digital image archives pose a complex set of technical, legal, ethical and methodological challenges, particularly for film and media studies and adjacent fields. In a series of studies and interviews with practitioners, scholars and theorists, this volume draws a detailed map of these challenges and offers perspectives for further research and creative practice.
