Inside Installations Glossary (2007)

Posted on Wed, 10/29/2008 - 08:19

The Inside Installations Glossary is a product of literature search and analysis of lectures and discussions during the project Inside Installations. Preservation and Presentation of Installation Art (2004-2007). In addition, relevant term descriptions from existing vocabularies are included, such as the Art and Architecture Thesaurus, Variable Media Questionnaire and Subject Descriptions from the Catalogue of Netherlands Media Art Institute/Montevideo.

The Inside Installations Glossary provides an insight into the currently used terminology on the preservation and presentation of installation art. Semantic research into this domain is still in its infancy; hence scope notes are not included but in stead a rich compendium of quotations for around 100 terms has been rendered.

A special booklet was created as a summary of the project results. This can be downloaded on the right.
