The Reinvention of the Museum
On the Transition of an Historical Institution
28 June 2013
The museum, originally created as an institution of the modern nation-state, is undergoing a dramatic transition today. Public funds being scarce and the dependence on private sponsors thus ever greater, the museum is to be a place of education, civic engagement, and commerce-oriented event culture. Staff and curators must create exhibitions that have public appeal and at the same time take care of holdings and the return of cultural assets. Martin Roth, director of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, will talk about tackling this herculean task.
