Using Virtual Machines for the Preservation of Video Games at the Museum of Modern Art

Thursday, February 16, 2023 2:00 PM EST
This session is a report on a preservation project using virtual machines (VMs) to preserve video games for the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Since 2011, MoMA has acquired 38 video games, most of which require consoles or operating systems (OS) that are no longer in production or supported by their original manufacturers. To combat technological obsolescence, MoMA’s conservators have relied on emulation as an exhibition strategy.
