A two-day practical training session at Factum Arte´s workshops in Madrid complemented the theoretical training of the graduate course Advanced Preservation Technology Studio. The training in Madrid allowed the students to learn about digital preservation tools and technologies. The aim of this exercise was for students to consider technology in a broader cultural, political and aesthetic context.
