FREEDOM OF INFORMATION PROJECTS
RÉUNION DES MUSÉES NATIONAUX – GRAND PALAIS (RMN-GP)
RODIN MUSEUM FOIA
For more than a decade, museums around the world have been making high-quality 3D scans of important sculptures and ancient artifacts. Many institutions freely share those 3D scans with the public, allowing us to view, copy, adapt, and experiment with the underlying works in ways that have never before been possible. But some keep their scans out of public view, and I’ve been trying to help them see the light.
At the links above you can read about my successful efforts to publish the Berlin Egyptian Museum’s 3D scan of the Bust of Nefertiti, and my ongoing litigation in France against Musée Rodin, seeking public access to their scans of Auguste Rodin’s works. There are a few more scans and institutions I have my eyes on, and I hope to be able to share more about those soon.
