“Digital Art and Posterity” project is a research project of the laboratory « Labex Ars H2H », initiated at the Paris VIII University in 2011. Carrying more than an hundred of different projects, it explores the new bounds between arts and technics, sciences and their place in reality, physical space and digital data space and finally artistic forms and their mediation. It gathers near 1200 researchers, including 400 lecturers-researchers, belonging to six different postgraduate schools. On the whole, it is thirteen prestigious partners that are reunited, such as universities, art schools or great institutions. Among them, we can cite the National Archives of France, the Réunion des Musées Nationaux, the Pompidou Centre and the National Library of France.
“Digital Art and Posterity” project was started in 2015 within this laboratory for a duration of three years. This research’s goal is to establish a model for digital artworks and for their reading device in order to contribute to the longevity of a new artistic heritage, still little known and threatened by technologic obsolescence.
