AC/E Digital Culture Annual Report 2016 (eBook)

The AC/E Digital Culture Annual Report  analyses the main technological trends that cultural managers will need to bear in mind in the coming years in order to have a better understanding of the impact of new technologies on their culture organisations.
This third edition sets out to analyse the impact of new technologies on artistic creation and their use at cultural festivals. Its broad-ranging content has been divided into two main sections to make it easier to read for the different audiences at which it is aimed. ‘Smart Culture’ is the overarching theme of the six articles that make up the first part. Just as the first report’s Focus dealt with the impact of the Internet on the performing arts (theatre, opera, dance, ballet, etc.) and that of the second edition analysed the use of new technologies in the world of museums, for this third edition it conducts a thorough analysis of the use of new technologies at some 50 Spanish and foreign cultural festivals.
Both sections of the AC/E Annual Report speak of a hybrid realm halfway between technology and art; of blending between the physical and digital words; of vanishing boundaries between industries; and of the use of smart analyses and algorithms to give value and meaning to the often too much but never enough data. The chosen topics explore the pathways of the new collaborative economy; analyse its impact on artistic creation; examine the new space for interaction between people, machines and industries; and explain the changes that have taken place in markets and in how artworks are produced and sold.
