24. Berliner Veranstaltung der internationalen EVA-Serie Electronic Media and Visual ArtsEVA Berlin
The digital transformation of cultural heritage is a generative and co-creative process. It has long ceased to be the reproductive digitization of collection objects, but rather the imprinting of authentic experience equivalents. Telepresence technologies and three-dimensional visualizations enable a virtual re-enactment of the collections in documentation and mediation. Not as a digital twin, but as a documentary and functional enriched digital unicum, the object leaves the museum space and unfolds its own virtual, smart and shared heritage its own, auratic effectiveness in the Internet of Things, in social networks, on gaming platforms or in research and science. In addition to broader access to cultural heritage, new forms of circulation of knowledge and the differentiation of public media environments are on the digital agenda of the GLAM institutions.
The 24th Berlin EVA Conference 2017 is the forum where these topics are developed - at the interface between memory institutions, technology developers, information scientists and public administrations.
