The importance of archival projects in new media art, by artists such as Yao Jui-Chung, Maurice Benayoun, Kieth Piper, Muntadas, and Jolene Rickard provides a significant platform for reconsidering the theory of the archive itself, as formulated by Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida in relation to theorizations of the “event” by Jean-François Lyotard, Gilles Deleuze, and Alain Badiou

Professor Timothy Murray is Director of the Society for the Humanities and Curator of the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art at Cornell University, USA, and is co-moderator of the empyre new media listserv, and co-curator of CTHEORY MULTIMEDIA. A curator of new media art, and theorist of the digital humanities and arts, he has published widely and is currently working on a book, Immaterial Archives: Curatorial Instabilities @ New Media Art, a sequel to Digital Baroque: New Media Art and Cinematic Folds (Minnesota, 2008).
