Zitat: Proliferation of New Digital Objects

“As objects are transformed from one medium into another, what opportunities, and challenges, does this process of mediation raise for conventional museum discourses of ownership and to the politics of deciding where collections should be? Why, within the context of the largely celebratory discourses of digital technologies, are museums still reluctant to let go of their collections and, in some instances, their data? The proliferation of new digital objects of circulation provokes an anxiety in both museums and communities that contradicts many of the utopian discourses of openness that characterise the age of Web 2.0.”
