curator talk: andreas lange computer games as digital artefacts
In the past few years computer games have been recognised as important digital artefacts. The question now is how do we preserve them for the future? The task of preserving the games and making them accessible for us and future generations is a major challenge. Andreas Lange established the Berlin Computer Game Museum in 1997 and, as its director, has been influential in discussing games' cultural importance with exhibitions such as PONG and Mythos: A founding myth and its history. Lange is also the CEO and creator of DiGA e.V. - The Digital Game Archive dedicated to the preservation of games.
