Network for Experimental Media Archaeology

Eye is a member of the Network of Experimental Media Archaeology (NEMA). This international network promotes new forms of collaboration between universities and heritage institutes in the field of obsolete media technologies. The network aims to ensure that museums and archives acquire a laboratory function in which historians, archivists and curators are challenged to experiment with (film)apparatus from the collection.
