Art Game documentation archive on Internet Archive

"A new game video collection at the Internet Archive - games for art's sake.

We are pleased to announce a new game video collection hosted by the Internet Archive, called "games for art's sake" - http://www.archive.org/details/game-art. This is devoted to providing online documentation of both individual works and exhibitions of game art, art games and related work made "for art's sake".

Games constitute a large and important field of contemporary art. How this art will withstand the passage of time remains an open question. This collection is intended to provide a stable and enduring site for the hosting of documentation about games made for art's sake.

Artists, curators and others with relevant documentation of game art are encouraged to contribute their files to the collection. To do this, first upload them to the Internet Archive's open source video collection, using the tool at http://www.archive.org/create/. Then email us at and we will moved them into the "games for art's sake" collection. This will be viewable at http://www.archive.org/details/game-art
