From March 1st to 2nd, 2018, the conference »smARTplaces | INNOVATION in Culture« took place at the ZKM | Karlsruhe as part of the EU project »smARTplaces«.

Not only is digitization now in art’s DNA, cultural institutions are beginning to embark on disruptive paths in order to facilitate and support innovative processes. The »smARTplaces | INNOVATION in Culture« conference analyzes possibilities, and also necessities, of digital renewal within culture and spotlights audience development.

With a coherent and multi-layered use of digital technology, social web tools, adaptive storytelling concepts as well as joint exhibitions and activities on- and offline institutions will be turned into »smARTplaces«. Digital technologies and tools give the opportunity to identify and engage with diverse and larger audiences in many ways that were not possible few years ago.
But is it just like a walk in the park? This talk is about challenges for institutions. We touch the technical dimension but also discuss about non-technical dimensions that are strictly related how (if) to utilize technologies. Which are the technologies institutions should invest and which trends they should follow?
