Martin Roth Symposium II: Museums and Architecture

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 4| Museums and Architecture

The meaning and function of museums has shifted fundamentally in the course of history – from the early days focusing primarily on collection, to today’s concepts for museums emphasising exhibition and education programmes and developing local and global utopias of encounters and community. It is now commonplace to see museums as public spaces, but who do they belong to and how? What are the conditions and modes of access that best serve collections and that best encourage dialogue between objects and people? Our speakers will share their ideas on the nature of space in our current museums with an eye on both the past and the future.

Speakers of the day:
Bice Curiger
David Chipperfield
Louisa Hutton
David Adjaye
Pinar Yoldas
