Digitization not only makes the electronic capturing of art and cultural assets possible, but can in future also make them available via the Internet to a wide audience at any time and in any place. How will this digital opening affect the self-image of cultural institutions? What is expected of museums, archives, and libraries and how can they fulfill this responsibility? Experts from culture, politics, and business discuss the manifold effects of digitization and why access to cultural heritage should be a public task.
A cooperation with the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, the Internet & Society Co:llaboratory, the German Digital Library, the iRights.Lab Kultur, the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany and Wikimedia Germany.
