The Idea of the Global Museum

Conference "The Idea of the Global Museum" at Hamburger Bahnhof | Day one | Keynote by Luis Camnitzer

The video documentation of the further lectures of the conference is available at YouTube: Playlist "The Idea of the Global Museum".

The conference "The Idea of the Global Museum" is part of a project, which explores the collection of the Nationalgalerie with respect to its international and transregional entanglements. Over two days, conference participants offered 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? Is there a common denominator for “global” museum practice?
