EU Project "Partage Plus"
Since March 2012, the German Documentation Center for Art History - Bildarchiv Foto Marburg has been taking part in „Partage Plus“, an EU project on digital documentation of works from the art nouveau period. The results are being published in "Europeana", the major portal on European cultural heritage. To this end, digital photographs and access data on a total of 75,000 works of art and architecture in art nouveau style will be collected into a common database up to February 2014.
As one of the twenty-three project partners in seventeen European countries, Bildarchiv Foto Marburg has the special task of digitizing around 10,000 items collected in various museums in Germany and enhancing the access data. In addition, selected works of architecture from the German art nouveau period are to be recorded in 2,000 photographs. The third task is to develop uniform technical terms for all European project partners.
In charge of the EU project: Collections Trust, London (UK).
