What is Arthub Flanders?
Arthub Flanders is a search engine for information about objects from the visual arts museums in Flanders. All information (called metadata) about these objects is published as open data, so that everyone can reuse it in their own applications.
At this time, the Arthub contains 17,080 object descriptions from the Museum of Fine Arts Ghent, the Royal Museum for Fine Arts Antwerp, the Groeninge Museum in Bruges and Mu.ZEE Ostend. The Arthub will be further expanded with the collections from other Flemish museums.
Arthub Flanders is a living catalogue for a diverse audience of museum professionals, researchers, technical developers, (art) historians, education professionals, policy makers, students, creative industries and the wider public who are interested in art collections.
Arthub Flanders offers all the published information as open data. The platform leverages open formats and open licenses to enable accessibility and re-use.
