Arc-hive is the first open source digital platform to generate, centralize and share knowledge about artworks based on living materials or systems. Arc-hive has been possible thanks to the collaboration between six European partner institutions with diverse and complementary profiles that develop their activities within the museum, publishing, IT and audiovisual fields: Kersnikova (Slovenia), KONTEJNER | biro suvremene umjetničke prakse (Croatia), Hangar.org (Spain), Bioart Society (Finland), Museum voor Natuurwetenschappen - Muséum des Sciences naturelles (Belgium) and Cultivamos Cultura (Portugal), which leads the project.
