CIMAM's 2011 Annual Conference

CIMAM's 2011 Annual Conference "Museums and the City" will be held November 14-17 in Ljubljana, Zagreb and Sarajevo. It is organized in collaboration with Moderna galerija, Ljubljana, Muzej suvremene umjetnosti MSU, Zagreb and Ars Aevi, Sarajevo, for the CIMAM members.

It addresses the questions that surface as museums increasingly look for contact with their immediate environment, such as: What is this 'immediate environment'? Have there been any essential changes over recent decades in our understanding of what this means? What, in fact, is the space of the museum? No longer is this merely the museum's building; it is, at the same time, the city - both the local physical city and the global virtual city.

This is the first major ICOM-organized event on the territory of former Yugoslavia since 1997. Almost 170 museum directors and curators from all over the world have already confirmed their attendance.

The conference is supported also by ICOM Slovenia. More at
