The evening is part of Open Archive, a collaboration between Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid (the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision) to stimulate the creative reuse of digital heritage collections.

Open Archive

Open Archive invites makers and heritage organisations to debate the importance of creative reuse of heritage and the accessibility of online collections. Reuse of digital collections in museums and archives yields new stories in surprising, innovative forms. Under the name Open Archive, Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid invited creators to make new work using archive documents from their open digital collections and experiment with the possibilities of digital heritage collections in creative, technological and copyright-related ways. 


Artist Guy Königstein, filmmaker Donna Verheijden and artist-designer Oana Clitan develop an autonomous media work from the open digital collections of both institutes, to be presented at Dutch Design Week 2019 and at Het Nieuwe Instituut.
