Olia Lialina's art work My Boyfriend Came Back From The War has been published online in 1996 and is luckily still available today. But what happens to net art in general if the internet and therefore technology change fundamentally (or disappaear as we know it) in the future? How to preserve online art and make it available for next generations? For this purpose and as one possible answer I retranslated her work of parallel storytelling into a book, which provides the reader another narrative while preserving the overall impression of the art piece itself. Therefore it serves as an archive of the work without technological dependencies.
