Expertmeeting: 'Online collections and online audiences'
On Friday 20 January, specialists from the museum and heritage field gathered at LI-MA for the expert meeting 'Online collections and online audiences'. The inspirational guest speakers were Michelle Boon (Linked Open Data Project Leader at Het Nieuwe Instituut) and Donna Verheijden (artist, designer, filmmaker).
The point of departure for the expert meeting was the research of the same name that Rosa Mulder (Art Historian, Researcher and Writer) carried out on behalf of LI-MA, together with Gaby Wijers (Director of LIMA) and Sanneke Huisman (Project Leader Media art on Wikipedia). To this end, they spoke with project partners Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Van Abbemuseum, Frans Hals Museum, the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE), NDE (The Dutch Digital Heritage Network) and DEN (Knowledge Institute Culture & Digital Transformation).
Donna Verheijden, Building the Visual Mind, 2021
The program of the day focused on two prominent themes from the research: the status quo and future possibilities of opening up collection data as Linked Open Data (LOD) and the use of collections and archives to tell new stories for different target groups. In two working sessions, the participants shared and discussed their issues and challenges and reflected on possible future scenarios.
With her presentation A practical implementation of Linked Open Data, Michelle Boon shared both the basic knowledge about LOD and possible joint roadmaps to make Dutch collections LOD-ready. Donna Verheijden shared how she developed new stories and new artistic formats from gems of the archive and the collection of Het Nieuwe Instituut for her exhibition Building the Visual Mind.
