Activating Museum Data: Possibilities of Digital Data in Museums

Press Release


Online Evening Lecture by Dr. Anne Luther, Art Consultant and Curator

As well-connected institutions, museums are engaged globally with the objects that they display, archive and study. Information is often collected and stored in digital databanks. What can we learn from investigation of this digital material?

Drawing on international examples from the past 5 years, art consultant and curator Dr. Anne Luther will give insights into the study, use, and visualisation of museum data, to open up new perspectives on physical objects and the history of museums.

The lecture is being organised by Die Junge Akademie members Isabelle Dolezalek (Universität Greifswald), Simon Wolfgang Fuchs (Universität Freiburg) and Valeska Huber (Freie Universität Berlin), who are currently working on the project “Hack the Middle East” concerning digital data and related research formats.

The lecture will be held in English. Sign up free of charge here.

Attendance will require access to a computer, smartphone, tablet or other such device and internet connection. Additionally, we recommend the use of a webcam and headset. Login details will be sent on the day of the event to the Email-address provided in the online application form.
