#REDIRECT [[User:Dusan Barok/Monoskop library (project proposal)]]
Throughout the years I collected about 75 gigabytes of experimental films, video art, electroacoustic music, scanned copies of computer-aided paintings, graphics, prints, and numerous publications covering media arts and culture in east-central Europe, which currently sit on my harddrive. I included content I thought is relevant for otherwise under-developed history of media culture in this region. Thinking about how to make the collection public and particularly about limits of online archiving, I started to treat it as a initial phase, a starting point for development of a framework for multimedia resource maintained by a peer network.
The main objective of the project si to build a distributed framework for permanent public access to the archive.
* Open source art history - provide source documents, so that multiple art histories may be produced
* P2P topology for non-tech audience
* Place-based history - ground the works and events to locative context
==Relation to previous work==
The project emerged from my previous work on [http://burundi.sk/monoskop/ Monoskop], a collaborative wiki research on social history of media art and culture (since 2004), and [http://burundi.sk/monoskop/log Monoskop/log], a living archive of writings on art, culture and media technology (since 2009).
==Research threads==
archive, distributed/peer-to-peer network, art history, taxonomy/tagging
===Peer-to-peer archives===
* Private torrent trackers: [http://karagarga.net Karagarga], [http://surrealmoviez.info SurrealMoviez], [http://what.cd What.cd]. The three probably best sources for movies and music online are exclusive private communities maintaining strict user guidelines and being ruled by benevolent dictatorship of a few.
* Filesharing sites for ebooks: [http://aaaaarg.org Aaaaarg], [http://library.nu Library.nu]. Both are non-invite archives using centralised and third-party file storage.
* [http://runme.org Runme.org] software art repository
