At the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (MKG) I am responsible for the digitisation and cataloguing project and the MKG Collection Online. As an art historian working in the museum sector for 15 years and within digitisation for almost a decade, I know the challenges museums face when publishing their collections online. Having established a public domain policy at the MKG I learn about the potential of open collections every day. I serve as an Advisory Board member of the Europeana Art History Collections and I am co-founder of the working group “Museum” in the German Digital Humanities Network.

    Sharing is Caring Hamburg 2017

    Sharing is Caring is spreading to other countries and the first edition outside Denmark will be held in Hamburg, Germany on 20/21 April 2017 at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg and at the University of Hamburg, Institute for Cultural Anthropology. As digitization has become a major task for the cultural heritage sector, more and more cultural institutions are providing access to their digitized collections. But sharing is not only about creating online access, it is about sharing the authority to interpret the digitized assets and to create value by opening them up for reuse.
