Facts/ True stories behind the true stories

Cultural institutions are developing digital tools which enable (and encourage) users to transform archival source material creatively in new contexts. Narrative museums, audiovisual creators and journalists are applying these tools in immersive and interactive projects and games, for instance. They wish to reach out to audiences and relate exciting narratives using storytelling techniques, but sometimes thrilling tales do not go hand in hand with archival truth. How can these newly created materials and projects be made both attractive and truthful? How does one strike a balance between the original implications of the sources and their recycled contexts, which lie in between fact and narration? Creators recount their own experiences in a variety of fields, ranging from games to interactive documentaries and VR.

Surplus management

Data is the fundamental building block of digital culture, yet from a modern perspective we should say that it is – and always was – the substance of every culture. There is no doubt that the Internet is currently the fastest, most abundant source of immense cultural resources from all over the world and all ages past. Those resources are growing by the day, and we already feel a need to simplify the ways in which we access and work with them. At the same time, digitally created works such as video games, applications, and web pages are much more vulnerable to the passage of time than we might think. Correctly preserved artworks in museums and books in libraries will survive for centuries, whereas the digital art of the last few decades may not only be forgotten, but lost irretrievably. Solutions to these problems lie in major international initiatives designed to establish standards for disseminating cultural heritage, and also in the work of artists, digital curators and archivists striving to preserve, interpret, reinterpret and creatively transform the available cultural resources.

[unarchiving] on margins / Center for Urban History of East Central Europe

What can be the life of a film forlorn somewhere in a provincial village? A damaged tape discovered in an amateur club may become an important finding and an art object when it gets into the archive institution. Its destruction and oblivion do not mean the little value of the film. It implies, instead, the need for archives' attention to be drawn to the margins. Those are the materials in the focus of the Urban Media Archive of the Center for Urban History in Lviv.
