Institutionalising the Digital aimed to highlight a number of recent initiatives to have surfaces that are dedicated to presenting the work of artists in an online environment. Branching off into ‘the digital’, institutions now incorporate digital infrastructures as part of their institutional properties, launching digital residencies and giving away grants to support digital works. The talk focussed on the questions and concerns involved in the presentation, facilitation and support of artistic practices online by institutions that are both ‘digitally native’ as well as organisations that preceded computer technology.
Opening Times was present during the event through a take-over of the Goethe-Institut’s website, interacting live with the discussion.
The panellists include:
- Lauren Boyle, DIS Magazine, curator of the 9th Berlin Biennale 2016
- Cécile B. Evans, artist, London
- Zachary Kaplan, Assistant Director at Rhizome, New York
- Susanne Pfeffer, Director at Fridericianum, Kassel
The event was moderated by Filipa Ramos, Editor in Chief, art-agenda & Co-curator Vdrome.
