In a discussion on the evening of 4 November, Rony Vissers and Emanuel Lorrain (both from Packed, the Platform for the Archiving and preservation of Audiovisual Arts), Christine Lambrechts (M HKA, Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp) and the artist Frank Theys reflected on the question "What needs to be done to safeguard this exceptional installation now that the display and playback technology on which it relies is becoming obsolete?".
