Media Archaeology

This dossier on Media Archaeology is constructed to provide further reading in advance, and after completion of the mini-festival "An Archaeology of Imaginary Media" at De Balie, February 5 - 8, 2004. The dossier contains a number of key-texts on the relatively new approach to writing media history that has come to be known as Media Archaeology. We also provide links to key-thinkers in the field, most of whom participate in our project on imaginary media.

The dossier will further provide updates on the Book of Imaginary Media (and DVD), which is currently in preparation and that will be published in the Fall of 2004 by Uitgeverij De Balie. The video registrations of all lectures can be found below in this dossier.
