Organizing museums
in digital cultures

A European Haniel Program Winter Academy
7.–12.11.2021, Bern (Switzerland)

Museums change with and through media technologies. Beyond yet including phenomena such as the digitization of »analogue« collections, online appearance and museum pedagogy, today’s techno-cultural transitions affect and alter the museum as key organizational site of knowledge, experience and sociality. Propelled by the ubiquity and everydayness of digital infrastructures, communication circuits and media platforms, the Winter Academy investigates the organizational challenges that museums face in digital cultures, and reflects upon responses and new practices of organizing. The Academy is based at Bern’s Zentrum Paul Klee and is carried out in cooperation with leading Swiss art museums.
