New relations between museum and society

Wednesday 11. April  ICOM Norway  invites the ICOM community to a seminar focussing on new perspectives on museum ethics.

The evolving societal role of museums raises new ethical issues. Within ICOM Norway we have seen that this creates new challenges with respect to the contemporary documentation of controversial themes, especially when presenting the stories of individuals. In order to address these challenges,

The seminar is followed by the conference “You shall be heard!?” – A conference about how (not) to share personal narratives arranged 12 and 13 April by Vest-Agdermuseet.

For registration, send an e-mail to: e.breie@vestagdermuseet.no 

Price:NOK 550,- including lunch.
