ARCHIVE ART BY NEW MEDIA TALENT

What is the creative value of our archive? To answer this question, Sound and Vision has hosted several artist residencies to find out what they think of our archive, and how they interpret the content and its history. During this session we will let the artists present their work and thoughts on working with the archive. The five young media artists Anna Klevan, Elki Boerdam, Robin Smits and Bram Bogaerts will present their work for the OPEN MEDIA ART project (www.openmediaart.nl). Gregory Markus will talk about the RE:VIVE initiative and working with several electronic music artists who have used archive sounds and footage in making new audio tracks, and in some cases accompanying video material.

OPEN MEDIA
Art For the OPEN MEDIA ART project we have teamed up with the Stimuleringsfonds to start a talent development program with five young media artists to create new work based on the archive. Anna Klevan, Elki Boerdam, Robin Smits and Bram Bogaerts have been selected to start this creative track.The artists are supported by experts from the art and media industry. During their residency, which started in May 2016, they will develop their concept and get feedback during monthly expert coaching sessions. The new works will be displayed at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum and online on OpenMediaArt.nl. 

RE:VIVE
The RE:VIVE Initaitive brings together the worlds of audio archives and electronic musicians. The initiative facilitiates the creation of new works composed solely out of openly licensed archival material. The first two RE:VIVE releases, Struggle & Emerge a concept album about the Dutch relationship with water by Irish techno duo, Lakker was released by the seminal R&S Records and the second, a compilation titled Damrak that focuses on Amsterdam have both showed the invaluable creative and inspirational power that archival material, audio, video and photos, can provide in conteporary dance music. Using electronic music, RE:VIVE is capable of bringing archival material to audiences in new and engaging ways from headphones to festival soundsystems all while celebating archives, open content and the public value they provide. 

During the DRIVE 2016 session the artists will present their process and concept to provide inspiration to researchers and designers at the Dutch Design Week.
