The growing of artistic production in digital and electronic media has urged the elaboration of specific procedures, which are different from the models of accession and cataloging systems of the existing museum collections.

This symposium aims at contributing to such a debate, by combining discussions on metholodogies of preservation of digital works, with analyses of information curatorship.

Another issue that is prominent here is the discussion of issues related to processes of computerization and information digitalization of collections, a problem that has become reccurent in the everyday life of museums and that needs a deeper and critical approach in Brazil.

It is also relevant to point out that Possible Futures confronts such issues with the need to discuss the political and ideological aspects of new storage technologies.
