What happens if we move beyond any marketing strategists’ one-liners of ideas about the museum of the future becoming more social, open, co-produced, personalized, augmented, and outside, beyond its own walls? There seems no way around it that this will happen in more or less concrete forms, but how will this really affect the institute, the infrastructure of museums, and moreover the content that gets produced.
Moderators and organisers of the conference, all professionals working in the field of practice and theory of art, will shed their light on the future and show their favourite (sci-fi) visions of museums in the future. Thinking from the content we may witness another future.
Presentations by, among others: Sarah Cook, Annet Dekker, Galit Eilat, Ben Fino-Radin, Christiane Paul, Jill Sterrett & Layna White.
A preview of what will be on show:
Neil Cummings and Marysia Lewandowska, Museum Futures: Distributed
Museum Futures: Distributed is a machinima record of the centenary interview with Moderna Museet’s executive Ayan Lindquist in June 2058. It explores a genealogy for contemporary art practice and its institutions, by re-imagining the role of artists, museums, galleries, markets, manufactories and academies.
See a preview of the film on You Tube, and for the first time in the Netherlands the full length version during the evening of the 14th!
