The book Possible Futures: art, museums and digital archives is dedicated to the discussion of preserving digital memory and culture, bringing together internationally renowned experts of the field of conservation of digital art, collections digitization, database politics and aesthetics. It is published by Editora Peirópolis and Edusp and it is available in paperback and ebook editions.
The result of a seminar held at the University of São Paulo in 2012, the work edited by Giselle Beiguelman and Ana Gonçalves Magalhães has articles written by a team of national and international experts addressing issues from the preservation of natively digital art to conservation processes of digitized collections, through the aesthetics that emerge from the databases to the new political and cultural complexity that arises with the era of “amateur archivists” and large “memorizer corporations”, such as Google and Facebook.
