In September 2015, I participated in a week-long intensive residency on digital media concepts for art education at Museum Schloss Moyland in Bedburg-Hau, Germany. The aim of this ‘summer school’ was to develop new and pioneering approaches to communicate the challenging works of the artist Joseph Beuys to a large audience while considering the role of digital technologies. One overarching question central to discussions was: ‘What kind of impact does modern information technology and social media have on traditional exhibition concepts and art education?’
Three months later, the museum instigated a campaign inspired by our work, where they have invited social network communities to talk and stimulate dialogue about Beuys using whatever media desired. The online activities can be accessed through the hashtags #beuysheute (Beuys today) and #beuysundich (Beuys and me).
