Digitization and Visualization of Archives and Collections –

Development and application of concepts, methods and visual tools for interactive presentation and analysis of archivals


Project lead: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Theo Hug, Dr. Eva Zangerle

Duration: 01.10.2018 – 30.09.2020 (Project #541-1-5)



The project builds on new possibilities of the development of generic interfaces and the visual exploration of archives and collections and combines them with regard to a modular set of open source software for visual presentation and examination of archival documents. The development and application of the concepts, methods and tools takes place prototypically on the example of the radical constructivism and the Ernst von Glasersfeld Archive, on the other hand, the modular tool set can generally be used in memory institutions in the cultural field (GLAM).
