About the Conference

As attention turns to the next big thing, digital games, artwork, interactive news features, and web-based documentaries made as recently as five years ago face obsolescence. How do we preserve digital documentaries? What remains, and who decides? That is the central question behind Update or Die: Future Proofing Emerging Digital Documentary Forms.

The conference, curated by MIT Open Documentary Lab and Phi, in collaboration with IDFA DocLab and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision takes place at the Phi Centre. Our goal? To gather a panel of leading digital artists, academics, and experts to discuss the legacy of digital artistry.
