Knowledge Creation in Museums

Panel Discussion with Prof. Ken Arnold, Ph.D., Prof. Dr. Tahani Nadim and Prof. Dr. Johannes Vogel | Chair: Prof. Dr. Michael John Gorman (LMU/Biotopia)

30.11.2021 at 18:30 

Museums are often considered as instruments of dissemination of knowledge created elsewhere, but museums have a deep history as institutions of knowledge creation behind the scenes of their public exhibitions. How is the definition of museum-based research shifting in the 21st century? How can museums facilitate knowledge creation with and by the public? How can exhibitions become experiments? How is collection-based research changing in the face of movements to decolonize museums? How can museum-based research assist in tackling “wicked problems”, from climate change to the biodiversity crash? This interdisciplinary panel will explore the
future of knowledge creation in museums.
