Collection in Transition – The “OpenSource Archive” at the AdBK Munich Archive.
In her lecture, Caroline Sternberg will present the new collection area of the archive of the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. In 2018, a separate collection “OpenSource Archive” was established for the direct further processing of art objects, which allows artists to intervene in artistic works and develop them further. The resulting artistic processings are thereby documented as part of the collection in process. The digital principle of “open source” is applied here in an analog context. How did this come about and where will it lead? Especially at a place as steeped in history as the Munich Art Academy, it is often a question of looking at institutional structures. The “OpenSource Archive” opens up a space for the further development of what already exists. Interventions in existing artworks in particular have a long tradition and usually present attacks on established norms in a drastic and radical way. In the OpenSource Archive, the processes of processing, recoding or even re-creation should be able to take place free of barriers.
