The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka organizes the  
international symposium (New) Media Art in Museums that will be held  
15 – 17 October 2008 at the City Hall in Rijeka.

Expert Scientific Committee:
dr Goran Zlodi, FF, Zagreb

Darko Fritz, media artist, curator, Amsterdam
Dan Oki, media artist, profesor UMAS

The aim of the international symposium (New)Media Art in Museums is  
to consider status of (new)media art in museum collections,  
conditions of keeping, protection, modes of exhibiting and all the  
changes that (new) media art  introduces into the everyday practice  
of contemporary museums.

Special attention will be paid to the specifics regarding production  
and rights that evolve from interrelations between museum – author  
– agency – certified producer. By employing the main subject: What  
are new media? – the symposium will thematically process temporal  
definition, production, keeping and presenting of (new)media art, as  
well as artistic features and influences that new media and digital  
technologies exert on contemporary museum presentation practice.

Detail information on symposium:
By organizing the symposium (New)Media Art in Museums we wish to  
stimulate colleagues from the museum profession and artists towards  
reflection, writing and discussion on interesting and actual subject  
of new and digital media, the various means in which the latter are  
implemented into museum activities and art creation, as well as their  
influence in forming the views on contemporary world.

The symposium's subject is defined, yet opened towards problematizing  
the experiences and insights from both theory and practice.

We take special interest in the present state of artworks from the  
countries  of the symposium's participants, as well as in  
institutional interest and actual artists. We hope for the high  
number of participants  as it will enable us to develop discussion,  
provide practical examples and create conditions for quality  
comparison. We wish to reach conclusions on situation both within the  
region and globally.

We take special interest in discussing the following subjects:
-          relation between media and museums
-          the percentage of representation of (new)media works in  
the specialized museums of visual art
-          institutions' relation  to (new)media museum items
-          author's rights (author and collaborators...)
-          relation between original and copy (the number of copies,  
-          conservatorial procedures that are applied when a (new) 
media artwork is endangered due to a process in which it happens to  
be (keeping, outdated technology)
