Moving images and sound are part of our most cherished cultural heritage. They capture time and place, and shape memory and history. They are also fleeting: they unfold in time, and are affected by time. Environmental factors, material decomposition, but increasingly also technological obsolescence threaten their long-term accessibility. In the dual Master's programme Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image, we consider how we can deal with such threats.
Aside from focusing on the question of how to preserve audio-visual materials for future generations, the programme is also concerned with how we present both historical and contemporary moving images as sources of information, works of art, media (historical) phenomena, or as objects of entertainment, to broad audiences and to more specialist ones.
