International Symposium

《What Do Museums Connect?: Museums in a Post-Pandemic World》

14.~30. Sep. 2021

Amid the changes that the pandemic has caused, the role of the art museum and the methods it uses in playing a social role have once again become widely discussed topics. 

The 10 researchers, curators, critics, and other professionals invited to this symposium each reflect on a different perspective as they discuss ways of defining the new roles of museums that the changing times demand, along with their cultural, social, and technological contexts.
