After our first workshop  on exploring online cultural collections, we present the second chapter of Let's Visit Museum Collections. The main objective of this participatory event is to jointly visit online museum collections, experience digitized cultural collections with other participants, engage in conversations about appreciating art and culture, and explore gaps in their representation. By taking an online guided tour through museum collections we intend to draw multiple perspectives to it in order to highlight data biases and hegemony in these collections. The online tour of a museum collection will be followed by discussion of the underlying data and critical examination of its digital representation. This event aims to highlight the potential that online cultural collections have in reaching a wider audience while at the same time drawing attention to ethical pitfalls that it could be susceptible to. We invite you to join us for collectively engaging with online cultural collections.
