Digital objects such as the writing program Microsoft Word, the platform Instagram and the web browser Firefox are part of the everyday environment of many people. They evoke, structure and reproduce actions, world access and sociality. They shape culture and therefore have potential cultural and historical value. The aim is to systematically open up such objects by means of design perspectives for cultural historical reappraisal. Value standards and evaluation strategies will be discussed, on the basis of which memory institutions can decide which digital objects they collect, preserve and process.
