Open Worlds
Digital trails through contemporary spaces

In cooperation with Marta Herford, der Kunst und Kultur Hafencity Hamburg, and the Kestner Gesellschaft in Hanover, the Federal Cultural Foundation is funding the MGKSiegen in the project “Offene Welten. Digitale Parcours durch Räume unserer Zeit” (Open Worlds: Digital trails through contemporary spaces) over a period of three years within the programme “Fonds Digital”. In “Open Worlds”, the four contemporary art institutions will be working together with artists and curators to develop playful digital trails and artistic stagings in urban space.

Through the Fonds Digital – For the Digital Transformation of Cultural Institutions, which is one of the three pillars of the Kultur Digital programme, the Federal Cultural Foundation is helping publicly funded cultural institutions to develop digital concepts in the fields of digital curating, artistic production, outreach and communication. The digital projects are intended to help provide the institutions with impulses towards far-reaching innovative perspectives.

Research internship
at art museums NRW

The Ministry for Culture and Science is supporting the MGKSiegen within the programme “Forschungsvolontariat Kunstmuseen NRW” (Research internship at art museums NRW). The programme complements existing research internships at art museums in NRW via a different new approach: The focus of each internship will be on a research project in the context of the respective collection, as well as targeting increased cooperation with the art history chairs of the state.

The research internship “Collection as an Off-Event” at the MGKSiegen aims to make previously unresearched and therefore unseen collection and work histories productive for recipient-oriented museum work from 2020 onwards.
