Workshop Bonn: ‘How to keep your audio-visual memories safe’

On May 2-3 in Bonn 2013, a workshop on the question “How to keep your audiovisuaol memories safe?” was organized in the Institut für Landeskunde und Regionalgeschichte, Bonn. The workshop explored different perspectives offered by film archivist, scholars and film makers on how to store home movies, home video and online content. The aim of the workshop is to develop an online Best Practice Guide that will bring together expertise and experience on collecting and cataloging the family archive, preservation and digitization, contextualizing the audiovisual home mode, and exhibiting/re-use of the private archive.

The workshop is organized by the project-team of the research project “Changing Platforms of Ritualized Memory Practices. The Cultural Dynamics of Home Movies” and is hosted by the Institut für Landeskunde und Regionalgeschichte in Bonn. Click for a report, written by Tom Slootweg, here:
