Museum and Archive on the Move​: Changing Cultural Institutions in the Digital Era

Edited by Oliver Grau with Wendy Coones and Viola Rühse

The digital revolution fundamentally changed how cultural heritage is created, documented, analyzed, and preserved. The book focuses on this transformation’s impact. How must museums and archives meet the challenges of digitally generated cultures and how does the digital revolution influence traditional object collection, research, and education? How do digital technologies and digital art and culture affect our interaction with images? Leading international experts from various disciplines break new ground. Pioneering interdisciplinary research results collected in this book are relevant to education, curators and archivists in the arts and culture sector and in the digital humanities.

–New developments in museums and archives as a result of digital technologies
–Indispensable to curators, archivists, art and media researchers
