In its 90th Issue, TELOS magazine focuses on how the exponential development of ICTs is revolutionising the museum and cultural institution landscape, both in terms of the preservation and dissemination of their collections and activities, and of the relationship model – now bi-directional – with their users.
Museums and, by extension, cultural heritage, are one of the cultural fields of activity that have experienced
greater change since their historic inception as national museums. Transition from large national museums as meticulous compilation of artworks, legitimated by the past, to the museum-show, from observation subjects to success at the box office, from stable material works to untouchable objects, museums epitomised the destinies of contemporary culture while the utopia of an open art linked to everyday places, blending in with social life, remained unreachable.
Today, most museums and cultural institutions have put a lot of work into their transition into the digital era, although in many cases they are just overwhelmed by the pace of technological change. Directors, commissioners, curators, communication officials… share in this special issue the best practices and approaches that they follow in their different areas of responsibility.
Coordinated by Mario Quijano (Instituto Superior de Arte de Madrid), “Las nuevas tecnologías revolucionan museos e instituciones culturales (New Technologies Revolutionise Museums and Cultural Institutions)” offers a thorough analysis, from different perspectives, on how museums and cultural integrations have blended ICTs into their internal management processes and their artistic wealth and cultural heritage preservation and dissemination activities.
