Portrait of Karin Glasemann

Karin Glasemann

Members Council Member
MC Term: January 2017 - December 2018
Digital Coordinator Nationalmuseum Sweden Sweden Museum

At Nationalmuseum we believe that Art empowers life. Our common cultural heritage needs to play a vibrant role in people’s everyday life. Having served as councilor since 2016, I believe it is through collaborations like Europeana that we achieve our common goal to provide access to knowledge, resources and art.

At Nationalmuseum, Sweden’s museum of art and design, I am responible for streamlining the internal digitisation processes and for making sure that the digitised collections can be found, accessed, used and re-used by the public. I hold a PhD in history and have initiated the Nationalmusuem’s Public Domain policy and several collaborations with Wikimedia Sweden, which boosted the Nationalmuseum’s digital presence. As part of our work to combine the physical and the digital visitor experience, we launched a new visitor guide app which I am also in charge of.
