Here’s your step-by-step guide for using the DAAP to build a digital archive of your artists’ books on the open platform.
In this workshop—aimed at artists, art archivists, book sellers, educators, historians and publishers, including those with a keen interest in Asian art—participants will learn how to catalogue their own materials using the Digital Archive of Artists’ Publishing (DAAP).
This interactive, user-driven, searchable database is a hub for creative practitioners focusing on books and publications as a medium of artistic expression.
In the workshop, you will learn:
How to set up an account
How to upload your own artists’ books and publications
Guidance in the choices you might make whilst uploading
Discussion of the ethical challenges facing archival practice
Key features of the DAAP that try to address these concerns
You will need: a desktop computer or a laptop (you cannot upload via a mobile device – but can view the results), internet access, and your artists’ publications. The workshop does not require any prior knowledge of archival databases or content management systems.
Note: this programme will be a hybrid event (online with onsite elements). In the case of enhanced COVID restrictions, this event will take place completely online.
