A five days International and interdisciplinary Hackathon for Art History and Information Science.
Cultural data analysis and visualization are important methods and research fields both for art historians and information scientists.
Thus, the goal of this Spring School is to bring art historians and information scientists together to work on data. Art history is on the brink of new research methods. Qualitative research is being augmented with digital methods.
While the traditional approach of art history is to compare single artworks and place them in the historic context of the history of art (close viewing), the computer can process and compare whole databases with millions of images which allows new insights into collections and oeuvres (distant viewing).
