EVA Berlin Conference 2019 from 7 to 8 November 2019

25.10.2019
Kulturforum

The EVA Berlin conference (Electronic Media and Visual Arts) is an annual discussion forum for electronic documentation and visualization technologies in the field of cultural heritage applications. The 26th EVA Berlin conference "BASED ON TRUST! Culture in Virtual Environment" will be held from 7 to 8 November 2019 in the Kunstgewerbemuseum at the Kulturforum.

"BASED ON TRUST! Culture in Virtual Environment"

"BASED ON TRUST! Culture in Virtual Environment" is the focus of this year's conference. It alludes to the oscillating field of tension that has been opened up between data identity and the real presence of cultural heritage. Digital transformation has made available the collection objects in cyberspace. Concerts and performances are transmitted as datastreams, and education and learning is continuously improved by the use of the VR. Digital telepresence technologies, thus, expand the visibility of cultural heritage and generate new contexts, narratives and perspectives.

But how can we represent credibility and uniqueness of the material evidence of the objects in digital data streams? What technical requirements are associated with the creation of plausible and citable scenarios and atmospheres in VR? The claim «Based on Trust» refers to all areas of the «virtualization of the museum» in 2D, 3D, sound and video formats as well as in e-installations, explorative VR applications and AI. Authenticity and credibility are not self-evident at all in digital media. They require complex attribution processes and data curatorial expertise. The Berlin EVA Conference deals with these topics at the interface between memory institutions, public administrations, technology providers and information scientists.

26th EVA Berlin Conference

The EVA Berlin conference is an annual discussion forum for electronic documentation and visualization technologies in the field of cultural heritage applications. Ambitious digitization projects with regard to cultural context, network-based research and new technical opportunities for museums, libraries and archives are presented with a strong reference to their usage. Conference, workshops and exhibition offer a valuable opportunity to gain insight into new products and services and to establish partnerships. As part of the international network of EVA conferences in London, Florence, Paris, St. Petersburg and Jerusalem, the 26th EVA event in Berlin is a platform for transnational exchange and European co-operation.

The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin - Preußischer Kulturbesitz and Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) Optical Sensor Systems will be glad to welcome you!
