CSI Victory Boogie Woogie project

Recently, students from the Royal Academy of Art, Amsterdam University and The Hague University of Applied Sciences took part in the project CSI Victory Boogie Woogie. In this highly collaborative project, institutes such as The Netherlands Study Centre for Technology Trends (Stichting Toekomstbeeld der Techniek), Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, NEST, Cultural Heritage Agency (Rijksdienst voor Cultureel Erfgoed) and the Foundation for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (Stichting Behoud Moderne Kunst) are also involved. Read here about the joint symposium of Het Nieuwe Instituut and The Netherlands Study Centre for Technology Trends (STT).

The aim is to investigate which role new techniques can play in art’s life, in the sense of preserving it or keeping it safe for future generations. Piet Mondriaan’s famous (unfinished) painting, Victory Boogie Woogie, is taken as an example to work with. Each partner will look at Mondriaan’s work from a different perspective and that will add to the overall cooperative effort. The various projects, as a result, can provide a fresh look at Victory Boogie Woogie.
