With Art Encounters, arthistoricum.net offers a forum for artists and exhibitors and an alternate space for presenting art, beyond galleries or websites.
Artists and exhibitors can use this space to post biographic information as well as images and other data. These are then catalogued by the SLUB Dresden and complement the information contained in the artist's data bank ConArt and the Deutsche Fotothek image database (German Photographic Collection).
Thus, this data is made available on a sustained basis via these established online resources, and is available worldwide.
Exemplary for Art Encounters, the four artists here present their artwork or exhibition views. New "encounters" are welcome at all times.
