An information event by and with Sylvia Petrovic-Majer,
Made possible by the Knowledge Transfer Center, together with the University library and in cooperation with the project Digital Didactics in Art Education of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna

Since the beginning of the digital transformation process, there have always been new social and cultural challenges to overcome. One of the challenges is how we deal with data and the advantages and disadvantages of dealing with it in an open or closed manner. Some people are probably familiar with OPENNESS in data and code from the OPEN SOURCE movement. But which other data worlds are addressed by the OPENNESS movement? OpenGLAM is essentially concerned with data relating to galleries, libraries, archives and museums, but it also makes an important contribution to the development of "memory institutions" and in mediation, thereby significantly supporting human knowledge. More details can be found at:

The following topics will be discussed at the information event, followed by a discussion with the speaker:

  • How can I find my way around Open GLAM?
  • What opportunities are there for me to use the current structures?
  • What are the prerequisites for participating in these data worlds for me as an artist and artistic researcher?

We will also bring you a practical example from the Academy and present the "didae" project (
A practical approach will also shed light on how OpenGLAM can be used and what added value it has for a culture of use and social development.
