The possibilities offered by digital technology nowadays allow us to advance even more in the knowledge and, particularly, in the transmission to society of aspects related to artistic culture between the 16th and 18th centuries. This symposium connects with some of the current debates on the use of digital technology in the field of cultural heritage in general and, in particular, on its application to the analysis and transmission of Modern Age material or ephemeral culture.
The aim is to offer to the scientific and academic community, as well as to the interested public, the opportunity to learn about some of the most recent digital tools used in the museum field in order to disseminate cultural contents related to the collections they keep. To this end, prestigious institutions worldwide, among others, the Prado Museum (Madrid) – Princess of Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities 2019-, the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Vienna) or the Städel Museum of Frankfort will present the projects and the achievements from their respective digital development departments.
On the other hand, with regard to advances in knowledge and dissemination of European culture between the 16th and 18th centuries, this symposium will present current projects developed by humanists who have applied digital technology for the virtual re-construction and / or re-creation of the artistic culture of those centuries. The research that, in this line, will be presented at the symposium comprises real novelties in relation both to the disciplines that converge in this event, and to the field of humanities in general and digital humanities in particular.
