Open Museum 2009/2010

The program of the Open Museum has been inspired by Oskar Hansen’s concept of Open Form.

We stress the importance of mutual learning to replace traditional hierarchical passing of knowledge. We aim at continuous translation of specialist knowledge into categories understandable for all. Not afraid to assume a role of amateurs, we trespass on closed areas of specialist knowledge, and make them open for the public. It is vital for us to build a common dictionary for professionals from different areas and establish cooperation among them. The Open Museum is a museum of open knowledge.

In the first edition of the Open Museum, we experiment on many levels: thematically diverse lecture series are open to revision, criticism and collaboration with the audience, continuously searching for new interpretations.
