“Can museums play?” International Conference

We partecipate at:
“Can museums play? International Conference

6 March 2015, 9:00-17:00
Bologna, Terza torre , Viale della Fiera 3

Museums can be perceived as solemn, grand and outdated places.
The congress is approaching the question “Can museums play?” based on this impression and will explore the relationships that can be created between museums and play.The avant-garde art of the 20th century was often inspired by means of play. This created a kinship, which can be mirrored today to approach art in unconventional ways. How access to museums and their collections can be created through play will be discussed and shared by the speakers.
The congress will be streamed live on http://videocenter.lepida.it
