Lecture at the conference on the net implications of collecting practice and collecting research

30. März– 1. April 2022

Here you can find the programme.

The conference aims to perform and reflect on one’s own knowledge work as a networking practice. The network potential intrinsic to the collection examples of the case studies and extending beyond them is to be identified and traced. The common thread running through all the contributions and the joint discussion is the discussion of the usefulness of the network as a descriptive model for the functionality and dynamics of collections. Subsequently, the presented data, the actors and collections from the case studies will be related to each other and to external knowledge contexts in small groups in a workshop-like manner with the support of the Digital Humanities, in order to explore the knowledge potential of the web as a heuristic metaphor and methodological instrument for collections research.
and methodological tool for collections research.

»Training the Archive« (2020–2023) is a research project that explores the possibilities and risks of AI in relation to the automated structuring of museum collection data to support curatorial practice and artistic production.
