The current situation of art and research centres calls for a new, groundbreaking approach to forms of conserving and documenting new media projects and collections and making them available to the user. LABoral wishes to begin a series of debates in an international forum of experts with the intention of fostering debate on the cultural heritage of new formats and the archives, media libraries and documentation centres which respond to the needs of the 21st century. This forum is conceived to be an annual meeting that will bring together experts and researchers in the field, coming from institutions, research and industry centres in the visual arts sector who are making outstanding contributions to technological development and innovation in audiovisual culture, in the area of digital archives and conservation.

LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial is organising the International Symposium of Media libraries and Archives for the 21st Century for May 28th & 29th 2010, inviting renowned experts and leading institutions in the field of the conservation and archives of contemporary cultural heritage.

The symposium coincides with the opening of Mediateca_Archivo at LABoral, which was conceived with a mandate to be a permanent space exclusively dedicated to the documentation, consultation and diffusion of the art of today and experimental cultural industries, as well as a pioneering centre for study and research.

LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial is a space for artistic exchange. It is set up with the purpose of establishing an effective alliance between art, design, culture, industry and economic progress and the goal of becoming a space for interaction and dialogue between art, new technologies and industrial creation. It throws a special spotlight on production, creation and research into art concepts still being defined.
