The Museum in the Digital Age
The “digital revolution” or “digital era” has affected most of the realms of our activities, in particular the domains of communication, creation, safeguarding and transmission of knowledge. Museums whose mission is to be open to the public, to acquire, conserve, research, communicate and exhibit the heritage of humanity are thus directly concerned by this revolution.
This collection of interdisciplinary essays highlights the manner in which museums and curators tackle the challenges of digital technology. The contributions are divided into four groups that illustrate the extent of the impact of digital technologies on museums:
exhibitions devoted to new media or mounted with the use of new media; the hidden face of the museum, the conservation of digital works of art; cultural mediation and the communication/promotion of museums using digital tools (applications, tablets, audioguides, etc.); legal aspects of the digitalisation of content, whether for creative purposes or preservation.
