The Sitterwerk Foundation views itself as a place where knowledge systems, archival strategies, and questions regarding research methods and analogue and digital work surroundings are discussed, tried out, applied, and developed further. One of our central concerns is not only providing access to our physical archives on site, but also making it possible to experience and make use of them from outside with digital tools.
The so-called dynamic order of the library that has been developed on site on the one hand facilitates a constantly changing position of the books on the shelves by means of RFID technology, so that books can be found in new contexts again and again and extremely diverse contents can thus be accessed. On the other hand, it is possible to personalize, save, and edit the research conducted on the interactive work surface of the Werkbank (workbench). The smartphone app X-Y-Z enables users to annotate and keyword contents, whereby what is striven for and facilitated is a user-based development of the collection.
