Despite an increasingly digital society, digital art is often not collected and preserved in traditional art institutes due to their technological components and anti-institutional stance. In 2017, LIMA initiated the research project Digital Canon?! to generate attention for, and enabling institutional recognition of, digital art and its history by creating a canon of, digital artworks made in the Netherlands between 1960 and 2000. This paper describes the research project and its methodology as well as critically analyses of the digital dived between ‘art world art’ and digital art and terminology. It concludes on future (institutional) perspectives.
