Funded by the Czech Academy of Sciences, the project The Matrix of Photomechanical Reproductions: Histories of Remote Access to Art examines the rise and spread of photo-reproductions in Czech, French, German and Russian art journals from 1900 to 1950. Combining digital humanities with archival research, the goal is to expand our historical knowledge, from local to transnational, and from empirical to big data, thereby opening new insights into the use of remote access to art in the digital age. This talk will retrace the different steps that led from conceiving the project to submitting a proposal and discuss the methodology and aims of the project.
