Reflektioner over ‘Inclusive Museum’ konferencen

Under overskriften The inclusive museum: the view from abroad har kulturkonsulent Yasmin Khan skrevet en kommentar i Museums Journal, hvor hun reflekterer over ‘Inclusive Museum’ konferencen, som blev holdt på Statens Museum for Kunst i foråret 2013.
Hun skriver blandt andet:

“It turns out that the UK public’s understanding of museums is not what we expected. BritainThink’s public attitude research commissioned by the Museums Association reveals people mostly want museums to care, preserve and exhibit our heritage but are not bursting for museums to be places for debate or to promote social justice and human rights.

The findings reveal the public has a different set of expectations to the aspirations of some museum professionals. The results could have been different if museums had an established reputation for being genuinely more inclusive. Perhaps we ought to take stock of what’s happening in museums beyond the UK?

I recently participated in the Inclusive Museum, an international conference bringing together hundreds of delegates dedicated to the inclusive museum ethos.

The quality of its discussions indicates progress and innovation are in hand when it comes to visitors embracing social justice in museums.

I learnt of many audience-centred projects, most memorably a town museum in Denmark that hosted a homeless person in residence for three months (at his request) and a light-therapy exhibit in Finland powered by energy donated by the local community.

Karsten Ohrt, director of Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen, said: “Museums are no longer masters of knowledge, but servants of knowledge.”

I agree, but the vision of museums as servants rather than masters is one that needs to fully materialise if this is how we want the public to see us.”


“A key take-home message was the need to become more active about “in-reach” – engaging with our colleagues and peers in the sector as well as strengthening existing relationships within our reach before embarking on outreach activities.”
