A New Landscape for Museums
How can museums assert their relevance in a rapidly transforming world? Changing patterns of cultural participation, new technologies, a global pandemic, a reckoning over systemic injustice and, more recently, a war in Europe are creating a moment of accelerated change in art museums. Drawing on insights from his recent book, The Future of the Museum: 28 Dialogues and the forthcoming Imagining the Future Museum: 21 Dialogues with Architects (to be published this year by Hatje Cantz), the New York based museum strategist András Szántó, PhD, paints a picture of the situation.
