[Nettime-nl] ME YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW IS A CURATOR (Zaterdag 19-12-2009 Paradiso/Amsterdam)

Zaterdag 19•12•2009 paradiso

Een symposium over kwaliteit in een tijdperk van visuele overvloed

Terwijl de musea beleid ontwikkelen voor het online zetten van hun collecties, blijft de digitale culturele productie groeien. Er komen honderdduizenden beelden per dag bij. Veel interessant werk wordt online geproduceerd en bereikt de fysieke wereld niet eens. De verspreiding van kwalitatief hoogwaardig werk wordt al lang niet meer alleen centraal geregeld via instanties die daarvoor ontwikkeld zijn zoals musea, fondsen of vaktijdschriften. Aan de andere kant groeit de behoefte voor fysieke cultuurbeleving nu men de hele dag achter de computer zit te netwerken. Ontwerpers, kunstenaars, bemiddelaars en beleidmakers
zullen hun positie moeten herzien, want nieuwe technologieën bepalen in
grote mate de mogelijkheden van presentatie en archivering. Het zoeken is naar nieuwe kwaliteitscriteria, denkkaders en methoden om verbindingen tot stand te brengen tussen
de virtuele en de fysieke ruimte.
