The rock map of Denmark

The aim of the project is to investigate how a digital social network site (Web 2.0) can be applied to facilitate collection, selection and creation of knowledge in a museum setting where rock and popular music is the topic. In methodological terms, the investigation applies ethnological methods as well as a collaborative design process involving users and other stakeholders. 

In empirical terms, the project co-develops a museum exhibit called ”The rock map of Denmark” which will be a digital collection (text, audio and visual files) of people’s stories about their experiences with rock and popular music in Denmark over the last 50-60 years. The “The rock map of Denmark” will be part of the Danish rock museum, to open in 2014.
