New Roles for Design Museums > PostCrisis Museums as Social Innovation Community-driven Centres (organized by University of the Southern Denmark )

844

Published on

This paper aims to contribute to provide an strategic roadmap to the current PostCrisis situation that is challenging museums. The author suggests that PostCrisis Museums should do a transition to become Social Innovation Community-driven Centres.

While design museums have responsibilities for the collection and exhibition objects that mark design’s historical trajectories, this task is, arguably, becoming more complex and challenging. The last 20 years has seen the proliferation of design museums through Europe and beyond. At the same time, the practices, social meanings, political significances and economic roles of design have changed radically. In turn, this implies a new range of opportunities for how design museums might function.
Design museums are varied in their scale, location, audience, funding and, thus, curatorial aims. It is thus unwise to be prescriptive about them. However, this event provides a forum to develop the debate on what design museums can do. The event is shaped by three aims:
• to develop a contextualised discussion as to current developments in and around design culture (social, political, economic, geographical, technological and professional) that impact on design museums;
• to discuss resultant intellectual and practical questions available to contemporary design curatorship;
• to identify possible future scenarios for design in museums.
The event is planned to encourage debate and exploration. Invited practitioners and researchers in the field will give brief position statements at strategic points, as the discussion unfolds. As a prompt, some, but not all, key issues are summarized in the diagram below.
