Got some old video you want digitized? The New Museum’s got you covered. XFR STN (pronounced “transfer station”), a new initiative in collaboration with their digital media affiliate Rhizome, offers video artists the opportunity to digitize their original works. Pieces long trapped in VHS tapes or other obsolete formats like U-matic or audio tapes will forever be free! Every digitized work from XFR STN will be made available immediately after transfer for free, public download in multiple formats on archive.org.
