About the exhibition

This experimental show develops a ‘talking museum’, based on a concept devised jointly by five museums (Kumu Tallinn, Muzeum Sztuki Lodz, MSU Zagreb, Museion Bozen, Kunsthaus Graz). It links up local history with museum collections and new, commissioned interventions that have been created in the museums involved, forming along the twin concepts of activation and experience.


Cooperation between an active youth group, the curators’ team, the educators as well as the marketing team led to the concept that evolved from this of an open building plan, a museum as medium.
