This case study looks at the preservation of the art history documentary Office Baroque, a project by Gordon Matta-Clark by Cherica Convents and Roger Steylaerts, about the realisation of the eponymous work by the American artist Gordon Matta-Clark in Antwerp in 1977. The original reversal film montage and magnetic audio tape (16 mm) were digitised and restored by Argos in the context of the European digitisation project Digitising Contemporary Art.
