MEMORY BUILDING: ENGAGING SOCIETY IN SELF-REFLECTIVE MUSEUMS
The Conference will be opened by ICOM’s president Suay Aksoy.
The International Committee of Memorial Museums in Remembrance of the Victims of Public Crimes and the International Committee for Architecture and Museum Techniques have a joint conference in Cincinnati USA. The theme of the conference:
MEMORY BUILDING: Engaging Society in self-reflective Museums
Cincinnati, Ohio, the “Queen City” in the heart of America offers an unexpectedly apt venue at the crossroads of a complex political time to explore the topic of engaging societies in self-reflective museums. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center will host the meeting that begins with an examination of American narratives in its national museums, and moves to other themes of interest to ICAMT and ICMEMO members as we hold joint and parallel sessions –including the “Architecture of Memorial Museums on Historical Sites and Off Site”, the “Human Rights Struggle and Slavery in Exhibitions throughout the World”, creating innovative spaces, and recreating spaces where the narratives used for years are no longer resonant with its current visitors.
Join ICAMT and ICMEMO, members and all interested museum professionals, and students are kindly invited to participate.
