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.
