Corine Lindenbergh has overseen the renewal of Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid for the past seven years. It opened for the public in February this year. From the very start, where the Institute about media had to reinvent itself in a completely mediatised world, to creating over 50 highly interactive exhibits, combining tools like facial and emotion recognition to visitors databases and personalisation in content.
State-of-the art as it is, it was an immense but highly rewarding puzzle to keep all specialised parties on the same page. Being an art historian, but most of all a museum maker, she will assure you that anyone is able to engage in a complex digital journey with the right tools and mindset.
Corine Lindenbergh will be speaking at the MuseumNext Digital Summit :
Creating a Modern Media Museum
Media is omnipresent in our daily lives, but how can a museum tell this constantly evolving contemporary and increasingly digital story? This year the Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid in the Netherlands opened a new, state-of-the-art Media Museum.
Using cutting-edge techniques like facial recognition and motion tracking and offering personalised content, this new museum embraces and questions these techniques to provide visitors with an exciting digital experience to get them thinking about modern media and how they use it.
