How do we continue the significant preservation work when our budgets become tighter and tighter? What ways are there to save money? How can we strategise for the sustainability of not only AV cultural heritage but also the knowledge and expertise of organisations? Gaby Wijers — head of preservation at the Netherlands Media Art Institute — tells the story of a new start for media art after the government withdraws funding. This edition also features Peter B. Kaufman on how to estimate the value of the AV archive industry and Kara van Malssen about open source tools for AV digital preservation workflows.
