<nettime-ann> D.V.A. turns 10! and offers new collective tools


.
DATABASE OF VIRTUAL ART TURNS 10! 
WITH NEW SUBMISSION SUPPORT & NEW ARTIST SPECIALS 

As pioneer in the field, the collective Database of Virtual Art (DVA) 
has been documenting the rapidly evolving digital installation 
art since 1998. www.virtualart.at 
Beside new artist specials, which will be joined by editorial features,
the 
DVA offers henceforth an innovative submission process: Collective 
documentation is supported by simplified *assist tools* to help upload

information for publication in minutes. 

Artists, and at this point an additional 282 theorists and
mediaarthistorians, 
are members of the collective DVA-Archive. Monthly evaluated user 
statistics and open source technology support the collective process.
The DVA received public support from various foundations, allowing its

research-oriented, complex overview of immersive, interactive, 
telematic and genetic art to be developed in cooperation 
with known media artists, researchers and institutions of the field. 
The DVA is based on the âconcept of expanded documentationâ. 

Currently it contains thousands of work descriptions and digital 
documents, videos, technical data, institutions and
bio-bibliographical
information. As one of the richest resources online, with a systematic

thesaurus, the scientific project was from its beginning a university 
based endeavor.   www.virtualart.at 

We encourage your remarks and suggestions!

is encouraged to register with  sabine.lindner {AT} donau-uni.ac.at

Beside the Database of Virtual Art - GOETTWEIG-ONLINE will be up
this month. The Print Collection contains 30.000 original prints

our field with an open archive contextualizing media art in art and 
image history.
