17 Jan The Art Museum in the Digital Age
The Belvedere Research Center is continuing its conference series on the digital transformation of art museums with its fifth event on the topic. While the 2022 conference challenged binary concepts such as analog/ digital, this year’s event critically examines the imagined cultural metaverse. In four thematic online sessions and an on-site workshop, the lectures deal with the immersive experiences of virtuality and reality, cultural heritage data, value discourse surrounding the metaverse and NFTs, and self-perception and the social role of museums.

If you are in Vienna you can join us in person on the 20th of January for a workshop and panel discussion. The panel discussion will take place in the Blickle cinema at Belvedere 21 and will be offered to international participants online via Zoom. Christian Huemer, head of the Belvedere Research Center, will discuss various aspects of immersive experiences between virtuality and reality with experts on topics such as digital image, gamification and artificial intelligence.
