New Media Encyclopedia, um projecto a acompanhar

"The New Media Encyclopedia
is the first trilingual English-French-German catalogue of its kind freely available on-line. It is intended as a source of information, a tool for documentary research, and a scholarly work, but also a locus of debate on artistic practices related to the new media.

For this first phase of the project, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Museum Ludwig, and the Centre pour l'Image Contemporaine have pooled information on their respective holdings in order to provide the international public with a reference work bringing together three major European collections.

The site also inventories initiatives taken in the field of new media--notably exhibitions and other public events, publications, and productions--by the partners cited above as well as the Constant vzw, Vereniging voor Kunst en Media, and the Association Française d'Action Artistique (AFAA).

This catalogue will be constituted progressively: the first part (published in November 1998) covers 43 artists and 233 of their works. The second part, anticipated for late 2000, will include 100 artists and 250 works. The totality of the artists and works in the collections of the three partners will be available. It is hoped that other public collections will also join this proejct and help to enrich it through their collaboration."
