Negotiating London



Registration requiered!



Architecture and housing, transport and public space, and ecology and migration are some of the key issues facing cities at the moment. This is also true of London, bustling with energy and Europe’s largest city. A look at our area of interest reveals London’s dynamic development, both in terms of the creation of new museum and cultural spaces as well as in the way the city and urban issues are collected, exhibited, and communicated in these spaces. 


During our three-day event, we will focus on two areas: First, we will discuss how trends in urban development and society are impacting the institutional identities of traditional institutions, their location policy, collecting approaches, curatorial work, as well as their offerings. Then we will devote our attention to associations, groups, and initiatives that arise from this dynamic development and focus on opening new avenues with regard to the public sphere, new curatorial and educational practices, as well as new types of cooperation. A fact-finding tour with museum and exhibition visits as well as discussions with experts.
