from the mission statement:
"The emphasis is on unearthing female productions in the field of electronic arts, analysing their place in the overall historical context and making them visible for a wider public. With this research priority, the Institute could position itself at an international level and join the network of the few existing institutions that are also active in this field. In 2003, for example, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the most renowned institutions world-wide, published the book ”Women, Art, and Technology” edited by Judy Malloy. Within this research domain, the Institute should particularly focus on the acoustic arts in all their manifestations."
