This departments points to some platforms which got just a temporary relevance, eg
from a couple of projects realised on the platform only 3 remained
dedicated to Quicktime as an artistic medium and
Flash – the multimedia software (formally by Macromedia).
These projects, inluding a large quantity of artists do not just represent valuable archives, but also example of curating virtual space.
This platform – dedicated to audio-visual media – served between 2009-2012 as a representation window complementing CologneOFF – Cologne International Videoart Festival
and VideoChannel – for instance as a part of “NewMediaFest2010” – http://2010.newmediafest.org.
VAD was discontinued 2012, but its is representing an excellent archives, because it is placing artists participation in changing contexts.
