An International Research Project - Database Construction and Contemporary Art
At the beginning of 2001 VVP AVU became an associated partner of an international research project supported by the EU Vektor / Database Construction and Contemporary Art. Numerous major institutions and archives of contemporary art are co-operating on the project, which was launched in 2000. The main organiser is the archive for contemporary art Basis Wien and its partners: Documenta Archive, Kassel (D); John Hansard Gallery, University of Southampton (GB); Museion - Museum for Modern Art, Bolzano (I); Archives de la Critique d´Art, Rennes (F); Zentralarchiv des internationalen Kunsthandels, Bonn / Cologne (D). Associated Partner from Central and Eastern Europe: VVP AVU, Prague (CZ); Contemporary Art Center, Skopje (MK); Institute for Modern Art, Nürnberg (D); Kunst-Bulletin / Schweizerisher Kunstverein / Swiss Art Association, Zürich (CH); Ludwig Museum, Budapest (H); Moderna Galerija, Ljubljana (SL); Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum Joanneum, Graz (A); Generali Foundation, Vienna (A).
The aim of the project was to digitalise and establish mutually integrated archives from variously structured institutions. The main goal was to achieve an internationally valid standard of archive databases so that all hitherto unavailable data is accessible on-line. AIT (Applied Information Technology Research Corporation, Graz) created a suitable web database system for the project.
