New website for the Kunsthalle zu Kiel
New website for the Kunsthalle zu Kiel with the implementation of a collection-online connection
The Kunsthalle zu Kiel commissioned gradwerk with the concept and design of a new multilingual website. In order to make the countless art objects searchable for technically interested users, a connection via Lido interface to museumPro, a software for the inventory of photos, art, objects and bibliographies, was developed.
Implementation of an individual event software for museum websites implemented in CMS 6 for the publication of dates and other events.
The data of the artworks are read out from museumPro via LIDO interface in order to display them in the online collection area.
The Kunsthalle zu Kiel commissioned gradwerk with the concept and design of a new multilingual website. In order to make the countless art objects searchable for technically interested users, a connection to the existing Lido interface was developed.
In addition to current exhibitions and many other offers, the new website also presents content on individual works of art. This area is called the online collection; here, works of art can be viewed and researched comprehensively.
In workshops conducted by gradwerk, target group-defining personas, customer journeys and a website structure model were developed and used as a master plan for the project implementation.
With the help of a calendar, visitors can also find out about future dates, such as guided tours and exhibition openings. General information on the subject of collections, such as paintings, graphic collections, sculptures and provenance research rounds off the content of the new Kunsthallen pages.
The online shop presents current publications that can be purchased on site or shipped on request. The Kunsthalle's art association, meanwhile, presents its work and provides an insight into available annual gifts.
The entire website can be managed by the CMS 6 system and, thanks to individual software and databases, offers comprehensive management of dates, offers, contact persons, shop articles and annual gifts. The connection to museumPro and the reading of the data is done via an automated process by importing the data into CMS 6 via the LIDO interface (XML Harvesting Standard for portals).
