Online launch event, March 4, 2021
It’s our great pleasure to invite you to the unique opportunity to meet the contributors of the Journal of Cultural Management and Cultural Policy’s current issue:
What could 21st-century museums be? In light of the global pandemic, environmental degradation, and racial justice crises, the contributions in this issue offer international perspectives, timely responses and thorough research on museum management, collection and archiving practices, curatorial approaches, and cultural policy instruments used to transform existing museum infrastructures. What is a "decolonized" collection? How does it affect exhibition development and public programming? How can museums serve a diverse collective memory in the future and what implications does this have for museum users? What role does "the digital museum" play in this context? And how does cultural policy need to respond to such novel approaches?
Along guest editor Zahava D Doering, senior social scientist at Thinc Design, New York and editor emerita, Curator: The Museum Journal, the following authors will introduce their perspectives on the topics mentioned above (in the order of their appearance):
Afterwards, there will be time for you to engage in individual discussions with the authors and to socialize with the other audience members.
Please join us for the event which will last about 1.5 hours. Below is some orientation to the time zones.
Please register for the event via this form until February 25th, 2021. You will receive further technical instructions in a second step.
