Museum: A Culture of Digital Copies

Zwisler, L. (Participant)

Activity: Attending an eventParticipating in or organising a conference

Description

This conference takes its point of departure in the apparently obvious paradox: Museums are commonly described as storehouses for the real and authentic object, but have eagerly been embracing new copying technologies since the beginnings. On the one hand, digitalization can be seen in continuation of older practices. On the other hand, digital technologies apparently offer the possibility of reproducing, recreating, reconstructing, re-enacting, replicating and disseminating originals and copies in an abundance of new (and mixed) ways.
