What exactly do we mean by 'open collections', and how can you reuse their materials? During the Re:Use clinic on 7 November at Het Nieuwe Instituut, Maarten Zeinstra (Open Nederland, Creative Commons Nederland) explains everything about copyright, Creative Commons, and the free use of archive materials.

The evening is part of Open Archive, a collaboration between Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid (the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision) to stimulate the creative reuse of digital heritage collections.
Open Archive invites makers and heritage organisations to debate the importance of creative reuse of heritage and the accessibility of online collections. Reuse of digital collections in museums and archives yields new stories in surprising, innovative forms. Under the name Open Archive, Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid invited creators to make new work using archive documents from their open digital collections and experiment with the possibilities of digital heritage collections in creative, technological and copyright-related ways.
Artist Guy Königstein, filmmaker Donna Verheijden and artist-designer Oana Clitan develop an autonomous media work from the open digital collections of both institutes, to be presented at Dutch Design Week 2019 and at Het Nieuwe Instituut.
Open Archive events
Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision have invited three makers to create new works based on their digital collections. Artist Guy Königstein, filmmaker Donna Verheijden and artist/designer Oana Clitan have each developed a media work that will be exhibited at Het Nieuwe Instituut from 14 November.
Thursday Night Live! Open Archive
Guy Königstein, Donna Verheijden and Oana Clitan present their installations for Open Archive. For the opening of the exhibition, the makers are interviewed about their work processes and the reuse of archival materials. Three makers spent six months researching the open, digital collections of Het Nieuwe Instituut and Beeld en Geluid (Sound and Vision) to develop a concept for their work.
How Do You Do: Open Archive
During How Do You Do: Open Archive, artists, designers, researchers and heritage professionals will discuss the creative re-use of open collections. The event, organised by Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, forms the conclusion of the Open Archive project.
