Media art on WikipediaEdit

Thursday 30 September was the official launch of the three-year project 'Media art on Wikipedia'. Initiator LIMA, the expertise centre for media art in the Netherlands, together with Wikimedia Nederland and other project partners, wants to make media art from Dutch collections more accessible for a broad audience and generate more visibility for this still underexposed art form. The project also offers the opportunity to make metadata accessible in a controlled way as linked open data. One of the goals of this project is to publish 500 Wikipedia articles about media artists and their works from the collections of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the RCE, the Van Abbemuseum, the Frans Hals Museum and LIMA. In this context, several writing afternoons take place.
