CIDOC konferansen 2020 tar status på digitalisering av kulturarv med blikk på museumsaktiviteter som dokumentasjon og forvaltning, samt ser på fremtidige muligheter og scenarioer.
"Transformation from a digital perspective was generally first observed in museum institutions in the context of documentation.
Long used to support and facilitate traditional practices, these increasingly effective tools have gradually transformed, sometimes revolutionized, our very concept of documentation, and from there, of collection management, conservation, study and dissemination.
This transformation takes place in a more or less radical way depending on the cultural context, with nuances specific to institutions and current geopolitical environments. Whether it encounters fierce opposition, or progresses on favourable ground, sometimes leading it to depart from traditional concepts of the missions of museum institutions, no one can escape the digital trend today.
The CIDOC 2020 conference in Geneva aims at taking stock of the current situation in this field in the world of documentation, collection management and other museum activities, as well as outlining projections for a more or less immediate future."
