Kim de Groot is a design researcher with an MA in new media. She is part of the lectoraat Communication in a digital age and teaches new media at the Willem de Kooning academy Kim's research deals with the inverted relation between image and reality. Moving from representation to the performative, from the visual to the infrastructural, images are no longer created to represent a reality but to manage it. Kim examines images as informational objects and traces the relations between image, event and media.

The materialization of the digital double of the artwork


I’m examining the relations of the museum with its collection, more specifically focusing on the potential of the digital double for the museum as a unique variant of the original.*1 Studying the digital management of the artwork, I aim to find the museum collection’s potential doubles or even multiple other.

The fact that the artwork is a different image in the context of the museum shop, the museum’s website or in the process of restoration, interests me. These contexts produce different property relations between the museum, the collection, the artwork and its image. Embedded within these relations are multiple representations of an original artwork. One could say, these relations produce an applied and desired image of the artwork. How can these images start to level with the collection's original?
