Summer School on Digital Art History. Data-Driven Analysis and Digital Narratives
The Exhibitium project has been an active partner of the summer school Digital Art History: Data-Driven Analysis and Digital Narratives (Málaga, September, 4-9, 2016), where its proposals of data-driven analysis of temporary exhibitions have been discussed.
This summer school has been developed within the framework of the memorandum of understanding signed between the University of Berkeley and the University of Málaga, through the Art History Department (iArtHis_Lab research group). The purpose of this MoU is the organization of training activities related to Digital Humanities in the field of Art History and Visual Studies.
Some crucial questions have leaded the course: How to use thousands of data to produce new knowledge in the fields of the artistic and visual cultures? In which way does the possibility of processing thousands of data involve a paradigm shift regarding our traditional interpretative models and researching practices?
The course has combined a theoretical approach with lab-based sessions, in two modules:
Module 1. Artistic Culture and Data-Centric Society: Access, Structuring, Analysis and Visualization
Module 2. New digital narratives and interfaces
An internationally renowned faculty has been in charge to bring the course to a real success.
