Abstract

New technologies for creating and disseminating images, text and sound offer unprecedented possibilities for interactive audio-visual communications that are particularly appealing for researchers interested in studying the visual and performing arts ― in action. This paper examines some unexpected challenges related to decision-making about what can be made public and how such audio-visual materials can be shared. It examines theories about criteria used in the designation of cultural heritage and raises questions about issues surrounding the potential designation of audio-visual documentation of art worlds as artistic heritage.
