The subjective museum? The impact of participative strategies on the museum
Tuesday, June 27 2017 All Day

By adopting participative strategies, individual experiences and subjective perspectives gain more and more importance in the museum. The conference „The subjective museum? The impact of participative strategies on the museum“ brings together international voices to discuss the consequences of this turn to subjectivity. It aims to reflect on participatory approaches in collecting, displaying and researching and to analyze the impact of people’s subjectivity in the museum, whether it is from the museum workers, the visitors or the participants involved in projects. The deadline for registration is 26 May 2017.

The conference is a joint effort of the Historisches Museum Frankfurt and the Department of Museology of the Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias in Lisbon to bring together researchers from different parts of the world to fill gaps between diverse museological traditions. The target is to promote the dialog and identify how the museum itself is transformed, along with its practices and methods.

The deadline for registration is May 26, 2017.
