WikiProject Museum of Babel is the "museum of all possible artworks" for Wikidata.

It aims to extend the ambition of Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings into the third dimension, and embraces artistic genres from all cultures.

Museum of Babel article-generator tool[edit]

The {{Mbabel}} template, when used in combination with a Wikidata table, enables a basic Wikipedia article-generator for drafts on artworks in a collection, using information drawn from Wikidata.

See the tool in action at the Museum of Babel prototype-table for WikiProject Metropolitan Museum of Art on English Wikipedia.

Basic types in collections[edit]

We aim to expand the scope of Wikidata:WikiProject Visual arts/Item structure and the "basic types" of item of collection or exhibition (Q18593264), enabling multiple layers of interacting with and enhancing the collection data.
