Set Expanded: Moving the Museum

Set Expanded: Moving the Museum

The symposium will focus on the relevance of museums in a social context and the necessity of museum education. Theory and practice are intertwined.

The focus of this symposium is the social relevance of museums and the necessity of educational work within the museum. Theory and practice will be intertwined. In short sessions, partner museums will be invited to speak and offer ideas for opening up museums to society, show what educational spaces can look like and how a diversity-oriented practice can be designed. Workshops will provide insights into lab.Bode’s school projects: How can alternative narratives be developed? How can we establish critical anti-discrimination education and offer options for digital education? How do we implement outreach activities?

Additionally, projects by partner museums’ trainees can be seen in a digital gallery. Members of the Youth Committee of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin will close out the session.


The Socially Purposeful Museum


Set Expanded - The Socially Purposeful Museum

Over the last two decades, the view of museums’ social function has changed. The fact that museums do not reflect society but actually help to shape and influence it is increasingly acknowledged in the international museum world. The responsibility and potential of the museum to engage in creating a more just and inclusive society will be the focus of the keynote by Richard Sandell and Suzanne MacLeod (University of Leicester).
