The Idea of the Global Museum

Conference “Global Museum: Where do we go from here?”, September 2019, Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin

Is there a common denominator for “global” museum practice? This and further questions have been discussed at the conference “The Idea of the Global Museum” that took place at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin November 2nd and 3rd, 2016. Over two days, conference participants offer specific knowledge and points of view: What are the effects of a “global” approach on museum work past, present, and future? What are its necessities, possibilities, and challenges? This conference is part of a project, which explores the collection of the Nationalgalerie with respect to its international and transregional entanglements and will result in a large-scale exhibition project at Hamburger Bahnhof. On the initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation, the project is funded as part of its program “Global Museum.”
