Abstract: In an era when the debate on preservation, memory and oblivion is ongoing, this research work questions the linearity and transparency of the processes by which cultural assets are preserved and transmitted; as well as the heterogeneous agents involved in these processes and the spaces they articulate. In particular, this research work investigates the ways of preserving and discarding media arts and how, based on them, the notions of permanence, memory and oblivion/forgetting are configured at the core of the digital culture. Embracing and utilizing the notion of ecology of practices, this investigation aims at studying the interrelationships, the movements and the plurality which exist, underlining the coexistence of different schools of thought regarding preservation. It attempts to visualize the fine lines of the process of forgetting and that which is forgotten, the tactics of resistance against disappearance and the notions of permanency, remembering and forgetting, which these tactics articulate.
