Thematic classification and creation of a functional catalogue of Collection “Stefan Kanchev” within the Museum Collection of the National Academy of Art

Successfully was completed “Thematic Classification and Creation of a Working Catalogue of Collection “Stefan Kanchev” within the Museum Collection of the National Academuy of Art” - the project implemented by the Department of Poster and Visual Communication.
 
The work activities on making the catalogue (March–October 2020) considerably improved the preservation of all the works (originals), whereopon they were systematised in detail and classified by areas. The digital photo archive created some time ago is a visual supplement to the card file. This significantly has reduced the necessity for physical searching and processing; in the future it will be incomparably easier and faster to find a specific work. The initiative has also resulted in a functional catalogue in which each fund is visualised through small-scale images of archival units.
 
The catalogue of Stefan Kanchev's works, kept in the Museum Collection of the Academy, is also published as a print edition with an ISBN number.
 
The project was implemented within the open call for scientific and artistic-creative activities at the National Academy of Art in 2020.
