Talk held at Urban History Exhibited. Seminar at Den Gamle By in Aarhus, Denmark. 25th October 2011.
Jette Sandahl, Director of Museum of Copenhagen
As nations decrease in importance and as the power of big cities increases, city museums become potentially more interesting.
The scale and tempo, the richness, the contradictions and conflicts, the diversity and dilemmas of contemporary urban cultures are forcing many city museum realize that they are lagging behind, barely keeping up with their cities, and they have to examine their mission and purpose, their strategies and core values.
The Museum of Copenhagen is one such museum trying to find methods of permanent change to keep up with the rapid and dynamic changes of our city; trying to find ways of anticipating, responding to and interpreting the sometimes intangible qualities of life; trying to develop platforms which support mediation, living with complexity, with disagreement, and which encourage participation, and invite users to engage with and challenge each other.

  • Så snart den nye hjemmeside var i luften, kom de første bidrag fra brugerne til VÆGGEN.
  • Interessant nok næsten tidløse billeder fra et urbane landskabs døgnrytmer.
  • Når man som jeg har arbejdet mange år i udlandet og mange år i internationale sammenhænge, er man meget bevidst om den styrke og den platform, som den danske – og københavnske – kulturpolitiske målsætning om lige adgang til kultur for alle udgør. Lige adgang til kulturen er vores største udfordring, vores store forpligtelse og der hvor vi løbende kommer til kort. For Københavns Museum er det i disse år den overordnede overskrift, som samler vores bestræbelser på tværs af museets områder.
  • Jeg vil starte hvor jeg sluttede sidste år – med udstillingen Storbyspillopper. Med lidt selvkritik må man jo som museumsmmenske vide at store dele af befolkningen ser et museum som vort som ren nostalgi. Men hverken verden eller nostalgien er hvad de har været. Et yndigt dukkehjem som dette barrikaderer sig bag overvågningskamerar og ungpigen har revolveren lige ved hånden i trillebøren. Og selv en legetøjssamling vil fortælle om de samfundsmæssige strømninger og tendenser, som ligger i en samtid.
