Source Transparency and Data—The Research Database of the Mosse Art Research Initiative (MARI)
- 12:00 to 13:30
- Digital Humanities Workshop
- Research IT
- Meike Hoffmann and Michael Müller (Mosse Art Research Initiative)
The team of the Mosse Art Research Initiative (FU Berlin) researches the history and whereabouts of the art collection of the Jewish publisher Rudolf Mosse and his heirs. Using the database developed for this project, researchers pursue an innovative approach that addresses key problems of provenance research in the NS context: how can the complex results of such a project be published in a timely manner? How to make the source and context of one's own findings transparent? How to make the extensive material, which may not yet have yielded conclusive insights, accessible for research?
Meike Hoffmann and Michael Müller give an insight into their work on this challenging database project. Their talk not only revolves around the technical and content-related conception of the portal, but also about the challenges of implementation within the limited scope of the existing resources and limited project duration.

About This Series
Brown Bag Lunch is a bi-weekly meeting of researchers at the MPIWG who use or want to learn more about digital research methods, broadly encompassed by the term Digital Humanities. In the Brown Bag Lunch meetings, researchers can discuss tools, share ideas and experiences (good and bad), and learn from each other. Each session explores a new topic; workshops are usually interactive, and we often invite external speakers. Please feel free to bring your lunch, and a laptop or notebook in order to participate!
