Open Archive 2020-21

IISH is joining a new edition of Open Archive that launches this autumn. Together with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and Het Nieuwe Instituut we will stimulate the creative re-use of digital heritage in 2020/21 by offering creators the opportunity to create new media work using open, digital collections. This autumn three media artists will be selected to participate in the project in which they will conduct research in and reflect upon copyrighted and open collections.

The platform aims to offer a solution for independent Dutch scientific journals. Openjournals.nl offers them a low-threshold route to becoming Open Access.

Archief Communistisch verzet in de Tweede Wereldoorlog gedigitaliseerd

Dit jaar viert Nederland 75 jaar bevrijding. Door de geschiedenis heen zijn veel verhalen verteld over het verzet tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Eén belangrijke speler uit de ‘ondergrondse’ is de Communistische Partij van Nederland (CPN). Hun rol in het verzet was onmiskenbaar en zeer intensief, en die betrokkenheid was uiteraard niet zonder risico. Veel verzetsstrijders moesten hun inspanningen met hun leven bekopen.

Het archiefbronnen van de CPN uit de periode 1940-1945, onderdeel van de collectie van het IISG, zijn met financiering van Metamorfoze en binnen een project van Netwerk Oorlogsbronnen gedigitaliseerd en vanaf nu online beschikbaar. Dat geldt eveneens voor de documenten over omgekomen verzetsstrijders, die na de oorlog verzameld zijn om een Gedenkboek samen te stellen.

In memoriam - Machteld Maris

"If I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution" Machteld Maris, 1970 - 2020 If I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution wrote Emma Goldman, whose archives are kept at the IISH. It's a quote that fits Machteld like no other. For the 'Festival of the Rebellion' that she organized in 2018, she had it printed on T-shirts, and she even had the columns in the canteen of the IISH stick with it as a statement.
