The Future of Museums

A Series of Public Conversations
Posted by Gestalten—04/2013

Hosted by Superscript, HAO, and Neil Donnelly, a series of three public conversations investigates the future of museums. The location, exhibitions, and collection of the the Museum of Arts and Design in New York itself serve as reference points for the discussions.

The past Case study #1 focused on the topic of groundbreaking objects, taking as an example the Taboo Stool by Birsel + Seck, displayed during The Global Africa Project in 2010. Still ahead are the second and third case studies. A reflection on MAD's visionary robot exhibition from 1984 asks to what extent the museum can forecast emerging trends in design and art. The meeting for Case study #2 is on April 18th at MAD. Case study #3 on May 9th will treat MAD's location at Columbus Circle. This meaningful site the museum moved back to in 2008 had a big impact on how the museum would appear in public.

Related to the conversation series is MAD's ongoing exhbition After the Museum.
