John Klacsmann is Archivist at Anthology Film Archives in New York City where he preserves experimental film and artists' cinema. Before joining Anthology in 2012, he worked as a preservation specialist and optical printing technician at Colorlab, a film laboratory in Maryland. He is a contributing editor of INCITE: Journal of Experimental Media and co-edited two volumes of the Harry Smith Collections Catalogue Raisonne (J&L Books, 2015).
Peter Oleksik is Associate Media Conservator at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) where he has been working since 2011 to conserve the museum's vast time-based media collection across curatorial departments. As part of his work at MoMA, Peter is a member of the Matters in Media Art (MMA) team, a collaboration between SFMOMA, The Tate and MoMA to provide resources on time-based media conservation. Peter lectures and publishes regularly on various topics related to time-based media conservation internationally. Additionally, Oleksik regularly works with independent artists, filmmakers and musicians, such as Jem Cohen, Fugazi and Sonic Youth, to preserve and provide access to their media collections. Oleksik received his BA in Cinema Studies from the University of Southern California and his MA from New York University’s Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) program where he has served as an adjunct professor.
