Will the future museum still preserve artefacts from the past or will it turn to collecting and sharing “technologies” in a holistic sense including materials, designs, affordances and practices that are socially, ecologically and politically situated?
This workshop addresses the question of which developmental paths can be identified that might bring us closer to this utopia. We start with an audio walk that will immerse us in a future scenario, from which we move back to the present. We collect, deconstruct and reorganize objects in the surroundings, assessing what we would like to take with us into the future museum.
This study is part of the Interreg-funded interdisciplinary research project “New Museum Worlds” (Faculty of Design, Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with ZHAW and Vorarlberg Museum)
