What? > 

The aim of a Media Archaeological evening at La Virreina is to generate a space for sharing different approaches to the media and art histories taking into account perspectives, agents and variables under-explored in the established narratives of Art / Media History.

Through the 'research lenses' and case-studies introduced by Thomas Elsaesser and Wolfgang Ernst we will approach two different understandings of the fertile domain of Media Archaeology and its implications in the construction of divergent frameworks in order to approach the pasts/presents/futures of Art and Audiovisual Media and their related practices, infrastructures and agencies.

The presentations and the dialogue between these two pioneer researchers in the Media Archaeologies domain will be followed by an extended and participative discussion with researchers of DARTS and the public.
