The digital transformation taking place at the CCA is allowing the institution to rethink its processes. In particular, we question if the role of the institution is still and only “to collect and give access,” or if it can also be “to research and give access”. Find & Tell Elsewhere is a pilot project that is contributing to a potential shift in museum culture and will inform the CCA’s future collaborations. The project is based on the post-custodial model of archival practice and is supported by digital technology, in pursuit of a more collaborative approach to transnational archival work. However, online access does not necessarily mean improved access for everyone, nor should it be mistaken for digital preservation in and of itself. Moreover, there are significant ethical implications must be considered: when we digitize collections, who is doing the labour? Careful engagement with these ethical issues forms a crucial component of the participatory collecting practices that Martien de Vletter, Associate Director, Collection will discuss at The New Institute in the context of digital transformation.
This conference is open to the public (not free).
