Audio tapes, records, audio cassettes, and Super8 film – once they were all media standards. In the digital age however they have been superseded and are being discarded or else stored at the very back of the cellar. Artists and collectors however remain faithful to obsolete media and create something new out of old machines. Starting with select objects, different obsolete media are introduced in a technological and culture historical context. Works by Flo Kaufmann, Christian Marclay, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, and other artists demonstrate the potential inherent in working with analogue finds.
