Program as PDF
By adopting participative strategies, individual experiences and subjective perspectives gain more and more importance in the museum. The conference 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 conference is a joint effort of the Historisches Museum Frankfurt and the Department of Museology of the Universidade Lusófona of Humanities and Technologies 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.
