Art is revolution!
And we think that’s great!

For the first time in decades, museums have had to close for several weeks at a time, canceling events and shutting down operations to the public. In turn, a highly creative digital museum landscape must emerge to maintain contact with society. With numerous digital offerings, museums are trying to preserve public access to museum content. However, many museums of all sizes and in all sectors are just starting out in this area. As difficult as this beginning is and as confusing as the landscape of digital innovation may appear, the result of these efforts will open up an explosion of new possibilities.

Now a few Swiss avant-gardists are preparing to revolutionize the art industry. The new digital avant-garde in the art world: that’s 4ARTechnologies! Future standards in the fields of art, art forgery, catalogue raisonné, provenance / documentation and trade, united in one app. Art historians, app developers and art market experts have worked on the technical development for two years. Three patents and hundreds of test phases later, we would like to present our idea to you and invite you to try it out. Without obligation and without hidden costs. Because revolutions live from others taking part.

It all starts with a forgery-proof biometric passport for works of art, which guarantees the authenticity of the work and its complete provenance for artists and collectors. Thanks to our unique technology, the surface structure of a work of art is read by a smartphone camera and converted into a digital fingerprint. This fingerprint, together with information on origin and history, is secured as a biometric passport that cannot be manipulated afterwards.

Once registered, all other functions of the digital toolbox for the art world can be used. Elaborate condition reports are created digitally in minutes using a smartphone or tablet and shared immediately with all relevant employees, saving time and money. Information about exhibitions and works can be shared with visitors quickly and easily via QR code at the entrance. Audio guide on their own smartphone included, without additional effort. The exhibition can be automatically taken home and enjoyed again in the virtual museum. Innovative service and future-proofing for you and your visitors with the 4ARTapp.

4ARTechnologies lets museums take advantage of the opportunities of the digital age
