Videokunstarkivet is a pilot project initiated by Arts Council Norway in 2011. The archive is developed by PNEK (Production Network for Electronic Art) in the years 2012-2015.

The project consists of several elements:

  • Mapping and collection of all the video/film/media art that is produced in Norway since the mid-1960s.
  • Development of a solid database tool (DAM), built on open technology standards.
  • Creation of a user-friendly interface for the database.
  • Digitization of older physical formats to uncompressed digital files.
  • Management of secure user/access levels to the database.
  • Archiving old cassettes and playback equipment.
  • Research and solid foundation to academic standards.
  • Communication with both professionals and the general public.

The project will satisfy the highest artistic, archival, practical and technical requirements and will follow international and open standards.
