Thanks to everyone who was able to assist the Netherlands Media Art Institute by responding to their survey targeted at curators, which I posted here. The NIMk received 172 responses, and have collated the results into a report that you can download in PDF format at the Culture Vortex website.
I encourage you to browse the whole report, but thought I'd point out findings that I think are interesting:
- only 20% of the respondents use online video sites (Vimeo, YouTube) to scout for new work.
- 67% of respondents listed UbuWeb as one of their most visited websites, however, suggesting that curators appreciate a resource that is already heavily curated.
- there is no interest in a printed catalogue of NIMk's works for distribution, but heavy interest in being able to save selections in NIMk's online catalogue.
- several needs were identified, including access to full-length works online, access to non-Western work, and access to performance work.
