Matthijs Kouw from the Virtual Knowledge Studio (Amsterdam/Maastricht) invited me to give a talk as a part of the workshop: The digital making of art and science at the Maastricht university.
The main thread of my talk was:
The transformation of images turning into network protocols and into units of production and how it inspires me to reinvent existing institutional approaches, such as that of museums, to images. The process of restoration in museums can turn into an inhouse copy culture if only one would focus on the concept of metadata for example...
Matthijs writes in his report on the event:
"Kim de Groot presented her work on the networked image, and presented various configurations and reconfigurations of 'the image' as facilitated and enabled by digital technologies."
Sarah de Rijcke blogs about my work and that of Coralie Vogelaar:
"It is very interesting how their work really embodies the idea that images are not merely tools, but are themselves sites of knowledge production and dissemination."
Other speakers at this event were: Sarah de Rijcke of the Virtual Knowledge Studio in Amsterdam, Peter Peters (Maastricht University, Hogeschool Zuyd) and Ruth Benschop (Hogeschool Zuyd) on Artistic Research, Stijn Verhoeff (Jan van Eyck academie), Klaas Kuitenbrouwer (Virtueel Platform), Angelo Vermeulen (Artist) and Caroline Nevejan.
