Museums immersed in a new reality
Works of art or historical items are kept, studied and displayed to the public inside museums. New technologies like augmented and extended reality are opening up many new possibilities in this regard. Museums, for instance, are becoming virtual, with entire collections of digitally recorded images, sound files, text documents and other data of historical, scientific or cultural interest accessed online. The EU-funded UViMCA project will investigate the utility and usership of virtual museums of contemporary art. It will analyse and develop a conceptual framework for such museums and determine their social efficacy through an interdisciplinary methodology. Different curatorial approaches, theories of contemporary art reception and socially engaged artistic practices will be applied. The results will formulate a roadmap for future digital applications designed to support and enhance the role of contemporary art institutions.
