Day 2: Friday March 18 on Distributed Knowledge

Day II: March 18 2022

12:30  - 14:00 CET Workshop Wikidata: How to insert media artworks and collections?
This workshop will be held within the framework of the LIMA initiated project Mediakunst op Wikipedia, which aims to make media art from Dutch collections more accessible to a wider audience and offers the opportunity to make metadata accessible as linked open data. Sanneke Huisman (Curator, LIMA) and Hanno Lans (Wikimedian in Residence) will focus on Wikidata and how a media art collection can be inserted into it, taking into account their variability. Experts Lozana Rossenova (Digital Designer, Researcher), Andreas Kohlbecker (Data Specialist, Center for Art and Media) and Bart Magnus (Expertise Officer, The Flemish Institute for Archives) will be invited to think along! Moderated by Sandra Fauconnier (Wikimedian, Project Director at OpenRefine).

15:00 - 15:10 CET WelcomeIntroduction by Sanneke Huisman and Geert Lovink (Media Theorist, Internet Critic).
15:10 - 15:50 CET  Who cares ( – if public memory institutions don't?) by Cornelia Sollfrank (Artist, Researcher, Artistic Archivist).

16:00 - 18:00 CET Presentation and discussion on Distributed knowledge by Elizabeth Stainforth (Lecturer in Heritage Studies), Lozana Rossenova (Digital Designer, Researcher), Giselle Beiguelman (Artist and Professor at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil) and Cornelia Sollfrank (Artist, Researcher, Artistic Archivist), moderated by Geert Lovink (Media Theorist, Internet Critic).

The participatory, open and decentralized potentials of digital systems continue to animate artistic and cultural initiatives - as well as the corporate and governmental agendas they unfold among. As a focal point of these efforts, knowledge production, transfer and management evolve into ever-new sociotechnical forms, constituted by networks, communities and the digital structures that mediate their collaboration and archive it’s results. What practices sustain these post-digital assemblages and allow them to evolve? What are the politics embedded in their designs and protocols? How is the knowledge nourished within them opened up to both human and algorithmic reuse? This session is dedicated to a critical reflection on the collaborative practices and networked topologies through which artists, institutions and communities produce knowledge. Elizabeth Stainforth (Lecturer in Heritage Studies) The politics of digital heritage aggregation at scale, Lozana Rossenova (Digital Designer, Researcher) Rethinking user agency in the context of digital cultural archives, Giselle Beiguelman (Artist and Professor at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil) The Internet never forgets, but digital culture does not allow us to remember, will each share their work followed by a discussion, including Cornelia Sollfrank (Artist, Researcher and Artistic Archivist), moderated by Geert Lovink (Media Theorist, Internet Critic).
