The Artlab is the department within the Netherlands Media Art
Institute that is responsible for research. Artlab supports research
by artists into the use of new media within the visual arts. Here
artists can experiment, make contact with one another, cooperate and
create new work.
Through the Artist in Residence program artists are invited to submit
project proposals of innovative use of new technologies. Artists in
Residence program is a structural part of the Institute.
In addition there is occasional research done into tools that can be
of service in the process of presentation, production, post-production
and distribution of streaming media. Moreover, since 1990 the
possibilities for conserving video art and multimedia installations
have been investigated. For the latter the Institute takes part in
various Dutch and international collaborations.
As a research center, the Netherlands Media Art Institute focuses
first on professional specialists, but students can also approach it
with problems they may encounter. With the aid of the open source and
open content principle, as much knowledge and expertise as possible is
made available by the internet.
