Why Dür­er?

The Ger­man Renais­sance painter Albrecht Dür­er has been one of the most inno­v­a­tive artists of his time and open to new imag­ing tech­nol­o­gy. If you come to Munich, you will be able to see his 1500 self-por­trait in the Alte Pinakothek in which he shows him­self as the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of progress and pride in art pro­duc­tion. What a bet­ter patron could we choose to pre­side over a week of cod­ing, data analy­sis and visu­al­iza­tion?

By the way: Cod­ing Dür­er fol­lows the idea of Cod­ing Da Vin­ci, a Ger­man open cul­tur­al data hackathon that start­ed in 2014. Cod­ing Dür­er is sim­i­lar, it only sets the focus on art-his­tor­i­cal data.

And last­ly: No par­tic­u­lar knowl­edge on Dür­er is nec­es­sary par­tic­i­pat­ing here. But if we do hap­pen to cre­ate some­thing that is relat­ed to Dür­er, it would be fan­tas­tic.

Requirements

What pri­or knowl­edge is required?

No spe­cial pri­or knowl­edge is required. If you are an art his­to­ri­an, you should know your own field and have an inter­est in data sci­ence and mixed meth­ods. If you are an infor­ma­tion sci­en­tist, you should know your field and have an inter­est in art his­to­ry and mixed meth­ods.

No par­tic­u­lar knowl­edge on Dür­er is nec­es­sary par­tic­i­pat­ing here. But if we do hap­pen to cre­ate some­thing that is relat­ed to Dür­er, it would be fan­tas­tic, of course.
