Eurovision – Museums exhibiting Europe (EMEE) is a project funded with support from the European Commission to explore an innovative interdisciplinary approach for national and regional museums, aiming at re-interpreting their objects in a broader context of European and transnational history. Museum visitors shall face objects not only on a regionally and nationally determined level of meaning, but discover transnational and European perspectives using new means of presentation, performances and possibilities for participation. At the same time the project develops creative concepts for audience development and studies methods to attract the rather large number of “non-visitors” to the museums.
