The Immigrants Museum in Farum (Copenhagen)

Farum is a suburb 40 minutes away from Copenhagen. Here, following the wish of a major, in the middle of the Nineties was born the first idea of an Immigrants Museum, now hosted in the Culture House (the museum as it is now opened its doors at the beginning of 2012). The Immigrantmuseet is a part of the state authorised Furesø Museums, which also run local museums and archives. Entrance is free. Anna Chiara Cimoli (Politecnico of Milan) visited it in the framework of her research about migration museums, and interviewed curator Susanne Krogh Jensen.

With its creation, MACBA expanded its scope to strengthen the promotion of research activities, discussion, and the dissemination of ideas.

The aim of the Open Call for the redefinition of the lobby of MACBA Study Center, carried out within the context of the MeLa Project, was to propose the creation of a new, hybrid space, one which is dynamic and social and whose layout is sufficiently flexible and adaptable to enable the development of uses associated with many other spaces, but without being just one of them: classroom, lounge, cinema, […]

Insights from the 2012 MuseumNext Conference

The POLIMI Staff attended the 2012 edition of the MuseumNext conference that took place on May 23th-25th at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, that offered several inspiring presentations and discussions about the relationship between museums and digital technology.
