The international conference Digital Art History – methods, practices, epistemologies III for the third time brings together scholars and practitioners from the fields of digital history of art and architecture, visual culture studies, museology, information science, art, and design. Thirty participants from thirteen countries (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA) will present their ongoing or recently completed research projects, covering topics that range from infrastructural requirements of digital projects, data modeling, digital mapping, and image analysis to the relationship between quantitative and qualitative methods, use of digital tools in education, and decolonization of Digital Art History / Digital Humanities.


The conference aims at critically examining recent developments in the field of Digital Art History, along with addressing the fundamental question of whether the ongoing infrastructural shifts towards online culture, education and research – towards online pedagogy, new types of virtual project research and management, new and different models of presenting born-digital and digitized cultural content – could provide a convincing argument for presenting this “online turn” as a unique opportunity for digital art history to demonstrate and put forward its huge capacity for experimentation and innovation within the broad area of visual culture and visual literacy.
