How to properly conserve and exhibit new media art in galleries and museums? New media is rapidly becoming obsolete, and VHS tapes, tapes, diskettes, and CDs, as well as electronic computers and other devices with limited expiration times, functionality, and usage, need to be constantly renewed, converted to current media, and rethought for their presentation. The issue of preserving the moving image is in the Czech institutional collection-creating context at the beginning. Vasulka Kitchen Cooking Reader #1, published as an output of an international colloquium organized in Vašulka Kichen Brno in 2019, brings various perspectives on this issue in the international context and can serve as an initial material for further discussion on a comprehensive approach to preserve new media art in Czechia.

The book is presented by its editor Miloš Vojtěchovský and is available in electronic form on the Vašulka Kitchen Brno website. You can also order the printed book for 290 crowns at the e-mail address:
