The Anton Webern Gesamtausgabe is a critical-historical edition which aims to make Webern's entire oeuvre accessible to musical scholarship and practice in a scholarly form. Based at the Musicology Seminar of the University of Basel the AWG, supported by the Swiss National Scientific Foundation (SNF), works in close collaboration with the Paul Sacher Stiftung (Basel), which holds most of Webern's existing source material. Starting in 2016, the AWG will be released in a Hybrid Print-Online Edition, the printed volumes being published by Universal Edition (Vienna), the online accesible parts being organized via the Knora/SALSAH platform of the DHLab at Basel University. Project pages: anton-webern.ch and edition.anton-webern.ch

At the DH Lab, I am responsible for the project Archives on the move – Visualization and Communication of the Digitized Photo Archives of Kunsthalle Basel. My main interest is in contemporary art, especially media and digital art, but also in visual communication and web technologies. I studied Art History with special qualification in Curatorial Studies and Museology at the University of Bern. Currently, I am writing my doctoral thesis on Visualization and Communication Strategies for Digitized Art Collections in the PhD program Digital Art History at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.

I studied histrory, philosophy and economics, then worked as a photographer for ten years. Then I started programming and built a database for photographers. Combining history and photography led to my PhD thesis about dating photographic film with edge markings. The database can be found under www.bilderdienst.ch.

Currently I work on digital archival file formats and the the Salsah/Knora frontend.

I studied computer sciences at the Universtiy of Basel. Currently I am helping in the Digital Materiality project by developing a RTI (Reflectance Transformation Imaging) viewer application for the browser, built with JavaScript, ThreeJS and WebGL. In a prior project at Digital Humanities Lab, i helped developing the desktop software (C++, Qt and OpenGL) for the CAPcam, a digital view camera.

I am a specialist librarian for art, architecture, and archaeology at the Zentralbibliothek Zürich and a private lecturer at the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (ETH Zürich), where I was a research and teaching assistant (2001-2012). At the Digital Humanities Lab, I am participating in the SNF project ‘Digital Materiality’, and have worked on the SNF project ‘Die Bilderfolgen der Basler Frühdrucke’. My research is focused on medieval and early modern art, with a special emphasis on print culture, Renaissance humanism, and architecture.

I am a PhD student in experimental physics at the Digital Humanities Lab.
I develop the software and hardware part of the Digital Materiality project, mainly using technologies such as RTI, PTM, C++, Matlab and WebGL. I help develop SIPI (Simple Image Presentation Interface).
As an assistant, I help students develop film and photographs in the darkroom.
I studied particle physics at the University of Trieste and worked as an R&D engineer. I have a good knowledge of programming practices, image, signal and data analysis, and electrical engineering principles.
