Sept. 14–15, 2023, at the Institute of Theatre Studies, University of Leipzig (Ritterstr. 16, 04109 Leipzig), the event will be held in a hybrid format.

This event is a joint forum of the work areas "Cultural Research Data Academy" and "Standards, Data Quality and Curation" of NFDI4Culture – Consortium for Research Data of Tangible and Intangible Cultural Assets.

Performative arts and practices manifest themselves primarily live, in performances and events in front of and with audiences, but beyond that increasingly in media representations. Data on this arises in artistic practice as well as in production, mediation, collection, and research environments. But how should these data be modeled in order to make the respective events and processes clearly referencable, accessible for networked research, and also sustainably usable?

In the mostly object-based structuring of data from GLAM institutions (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums), it is often precisely the central dimension of the event that is not captured, or only inadequately. The problems associated with this do not only concern the field of theatre and dance studies, but also the subject communities of music, art, media, and film studies, in which the recording of event-related information in the aforementioned sense is also still in its infancy.

The aim of this forum is the interdisciplinary exchange about the collection, aggregation and enrichment of event-related data and the development of adequate data models. Last but not least, it will be about questions of artistic research and the mediation of data literacy, about synergies between the disciplines and their infrastructures for (meta-)data and research data.

More information on the program and registration will be available soon on our NFDI4Culture portal. The conference language is German.
