argos is looking for an ICT collaborator
As a centre for the arts with a focus on audiovisual media and visual 

culture, argos (based in Brussels) keeps close track of digital 
evolutions. Both our activities and communication are largely 
determined by the potential of new technologies: from online 
databases and CRM applications to RAID archiving and VoIP 
telecommunication. As audiovisual media are taking on new shapes, the 

production and distribution models evolve as well (e.g. High 
Definition formats, tapeless video-storage, IPTV, P2P and streaming), 

developments with repercussions on the various functions of argos.

argos is looking for a collaborator who can help to steer these 
developments in the right direction, both logistically, as with 
regards to infrastructure or content. This collaborator will assert

digital environment, investigate the various possibilities, both 
receptively and proactively and follow up on the implementations, in
