      REFRESH!
      1st INT. CONFERENCE ON THE HISTORIES OF MEDIA ART, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

      September 28 - October 1, Banff New Media Institute, Canada

      www.MediaArtHistory.org


      "The technology of the modern media has produced
      new possibilities of interaction. What is needed is a wider view
      encompassing the coming rewards in the context of the treasures
      left us by the past experiences, possessions and insights."

      R. ARNHEIM, Sommer 2000
      - Honorary Chair, Refresh! -


      Recognizing the increasing significance of media art for our culture, the conference on the Histories of Media Art will discuss for the first time the history of media art within the interdisciplinary and intercultural contexts of the histories of art. Banff New Media Institute, the Database for Virtual Art, Leonardo/ISAST and UNESCO DigiArts are collaborating to produce the first international art history conference covering art and new media, art and technology, art-science interaction, and the history of media as pertinent to contemporary art.

      The conference will also discuss the documentation, collection, archiving and preservation of media art. What kind of international networks must be created to advance appropriate policies for collection and conservation? What kind of new technologies do we need to optimize research efforts and information exchange?

      Held at The Banff Centre REFRESH will feature lectures by invited speakers as well as others selected by an international jury from 350 received paper proposals.
