Launching Museum in Dialogue

Launching Museum in Dialogue

After a series of stimulating conversations with the 15 participants of Museum in Dialogue, the whole group gets together for the first time on 27 June 2020 in Brussels to meet each other and discover the museum at a glance.

From September onwards we start working together in two groups to explore if and how the museums and their collections can be a space of encounter and dialogue. To begin with, we have planned three sessions per group after which we will decide collectively how to continue.

Museum in Dialogue is a joint initiative of the Evens Foundation and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium realised in partnership with FMDO vzw to explore how art – and in particular the collection of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium – can be a factor for social cohesion in a super diverse society and what this means for the more conventional art historical interpretation of the art works.
