In this article Milia Matilda Wallenius uses infrastructure theory and four case studies to discuss challenges that analog art institutions face when they are dealing with digital art. The study indicates that we hold on to old infrastructures and habits when it comes to preservation and distribution, but also when it comes to what an institution is and what it can be. This suggests that the challenges institutions face in the cases of digital art are part of a larger infrastructural problem, which includes systems for funding, distribution of knowledge, educational programs, and habits.
