Martin Roth Symposium II: Museums and Future
This year’s symposium asks critical questions about the museum's future. From 7 to 11 September 2020 ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) presents, in co-operation with re:publica, the second Martin Roth Symposium as a digital-analogue conference. Top international experts from different areas will unpack and bring to light challenges and visions in the fields of museum and culture.
Digital Day 1| Introduction: Museums and Future
The first day presents a global perspective on the future of the museum as a space of democracy. It aims to illuminate the museum as a source of inspiration for intellectual, political and aesthetic discourses and as a visible architectural signal for the development of cities. The first sprints and deep dives of the Symposium will offer regional insights in museum leadership in different cultural and political contexts, a historical view on the role of museums and raise awareness for the current technological challenges that the museum world is facing.
