Anneken Appel Laursen, Thomas Bloch Ravn & Martin Brandt Djupdræt: Conceptualizing city museum activities in Den Gamle By’s Open Air Museum, 25.10.2011 Den Gamle By

Info:
Talk held at Urban History Exhibited. Seminar at Den Gamle By in Aarhus, Denmark. 25th October 2011.

Anneken Appel Laursen, Curator, Den Gamle By
Thomas Bloch Ravn, Director of Den Gamle By
Martin Brandt Djupdræt, Chief Curator, Den Gamle By

Abstract:
In September 2010, the City Council of Aarhus decided that Den Gamle By should take on the responsibilities of the local city museum. This museum has now been closed down, and the buildings are about to be sold. In the beginning Den Gamle By was skeptical of the idea, but now we envision new possibilities. In my presentation I will discuss the following questions: How to combine local and national history in one museum? How to rethink and incorporate city museum activities within the framework of an open air museum? How to use the city museum activities to strengthen the national museum presence in the local community? And how reach out to new and museum-estranged visitor groups?
