25th Berlin EVA – Conference



November 07 - 09, 2018

The 25th EVA Berlin Conference [Electronic Media & Visual Arts] bridges between material culture and virtual representation. The concept of «Digital Twins», transferred into the field of Cultural Heritage, is currently changing our practices of curating, scholarly documentation and communication. Digital Twins provide broader access to the collections and allow for innovative narration and visualization concepts. E-installations and streaming services give duration to the performative arts or turn music into a perfect listening experience in the digital concert hall.

The conference will present current positions and practical applications on these topics in the GLAM-institutions. Particular procedures, innovative products and cooperation projects will be issued at the poster session and expo.
