The museum between analogue and digital: protection, enhancement and conservation.

On the occasion of the 23rd Triennale Milano International Exhibition, Triennale Milano presents the talk The museum between analogue and digital: protection, enhancement and conservation. 1923: Past Futures, to which AN-ICON researchers Fabrizia Bandi and Elisabetta Modena are invited as speakers.

 

Starting from the virtual reality project 1923: Past Futures, curated by Triennale Milano and realized with the support of VIVE Arts and the production and creative direction of Reframe Productions, the talk will tackle themes such as the protection, enhancement and conservation of artworks and archival materials in museum institutions during the delicate switch from the analogue to the digital and the coexistence of these two dimensions. Through an analysis of the level of digitalization of their material heritage, the discussion will develop from the guidelines that museums are testing for a democratization of content that only digitalization can make possible. Accessibility to archival material, for example, allows us to rethink both the concept of the museum as a container and its structural boundaries. The contents of a museum may not be accessible for various reasons, ranging from logistical complications to conservation ones. Here the opportunities that new tools such as virtual reality can provide to visitors come in handy, allowing an unprecedented, but sometimes necessary, use of the contents.

1923: Past Futures is the first virtual reality experience created by Triennale Milano and conceived on the occasion of the 23rd International Exhibition.
Ahead of Triennale Milano 100-year anniversary since its foundation in 2023, 1923: Past Futures recreates “past futures” and offers a journey through time to discover the history of the International Exhibitions. The diachronic narrative covers a century of Triennale’s history, from 1923 to today, building an immersive experience starting from the materials in the institution's archives. Along the way, visitors can participate in the protests of ’68, visit the Palazzo dell’Arte as it was originally conceived and enter into the mind of the architect Giovanni Muzio.
