Im Dialog

Es gibt Museumsschaffende in und vor allem außerhalb Europas, deren Berufsalltag sich aus politischen und/oder wirtschaftlichen Gründen als besonders schwierig erweist.
Die Museumsakademie bemüht sich, Leiter/innen, Kuratorinnen/Kuratoren und Vermittler/innen in Austausch mit österreichischen Museumsfachleuten zu bringen, mit dem Ziel, gemeinsam mögliche Antworten und Lösungsansätze für die Fragen und Herausforderungen der Praxis zu entwickeln.

 

 

 


Sarajevo I

Organising & Curating the Transition

16.05.-18.05.2007


Workshop in cooperation with Institute for Art in Context, University of the Arts, Berlin (D) and the Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo (BiH) 


How does museum work function in a country in which museum buildings have been bombed, collections have been partially destroyed and museum directors have no budget?


The Museumsakademie Joanneum responds to the development of museum policy in post-communist countries by the “International Curatorial Academy” and organises an event in close cooperation with institutions and people on site that does justice to the politically and financially difficult situation as well as the dynamic development of cultural projects. The “International Curatorial Academy” starts with a three-day event in Sarajevo, which specifically focuses on the situation of museums in Bosnia-Herzegovina and which deals with the museum context in Southeastern Europe in general. This is a region in which the Steiermärkische Sparkasse (Styrian savings bank) is especially involved and thus it co-finances the “International Curatorial Academy” and among other things makes it possible for all the participants to take part for free.

The four-day workshop in Sarajevo takes the concrete situation of museums in Bosnia-Herzegovina as its central topic and under the motto of “Organising & Curating the Transition” responds to the difficult financial, political and museological conditions under which museums work and offers support in the development of options open to the future. The various challenges the management of museums face are taken up as part of the event as well as the development of new models and strategies of museum work.
