How can students participate in the activities of a museum? Which kinds of strategies motivate the students to exchange ideas among themselves? What is the use of a museum for students today?
The project “Über kurz, mittel oder lang” is initialized by the department of Education and Outreach and focuses on students of all disciplines. With an interdisciplinary attitude and in dialogue with education, students take a critical stand to the museum, its displays and its contents. There is the option to create formats, within which experimental, constructive and interactive approaches can be probed and developed. The project’s aim is to establish a dynamical network between students, lecturers and members of staff at the SMB. A three-day workshop, which is hold by experts with different background, marks the project’s starting point. Different topics of interest will be compiled and the framework for collaboration will be configured by the students.
