EVA Berlin Conference

Berlin, Germany

The 25th Electronic Media & Visual Arts (EVA) Conference will take place from November 7 to 9. This year's focus is on "Digital Twins: Heritage - Materiality - Virtuality".

EVA is the annual forum for electronic documentation and visualization techniques in the cultural sector. The 25th edition of the conference this year focuses on the tension between material culture and virtual representation: The concept of ”Digital Twins“, transferred into the field of Cultural Heritage, is currently changing our practices of curating, scholarly documentation and communication. Digital Twins provide broader access to the collections and allow for innovative narration and visualization concepts.
