On 11 November 2016 the 3IT is hosting the social event evening of EVA Berlin for the second time. EVA stands for Electronic Media and Visual Arts.
The 23rd EVA Berlin conference will take place from 9 – 11 November. The conference can be described as 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. It encourages the exchange between heritage institutions and technology providers, information professionals and the public administration on current issues and innovative technologies of the digital society. 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, St. Petersburg and Jerusalem, the 23rd EVA event in Berlin is a platform for transnational exchange and European co-operation.
A new topic of this year’s conference can be paraphrased by the title DIGITAL ART. International digital media projects will present themselves at the evening event on Friday, 11 November, at our 3IT. There is an opportunity to discuss the challenge of ICT driven services for any area of life of the civil society – from share economy to big data and the question of the sustainable use of renewable resources – with reference to the varying perspectives of aesthetic concepts, media artists and curators.
Please note: the conference will be given in German!
