Antje Schmidt

Network Association Member Members Council Member MC Term: January 2017 - December 2018
Head of Digital Cataloguing Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg Germany > Museum

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.
