Sessions' Programme

The definite programme will be published at the beginning of September 2017, once the communication proposals are approved. The congress will be structured around the following thematic lines:

1. Art: Theory and History

What do we call Art? How should we study art works? Who defines and where lies the limit between what is Art or what is not? Why can we find certain objects in a museum but not others?

2. The Museum: Theory and History

What is a museum and what is it for? How should we approach a museum? What are a museum’s functions? What objects are admissible in a museum?

3. Museums for Society: Audiences, Education, and Identities

Who is a museum for? What do we think about museums at a personal level? What role do museums play in society? How does society condition the type and discourse of a museum?

4. The Innovative Museum in the Digital Era

Should museums adapt to 21st century’s media? What is the role of the museum in a society of information? Technology for museums, or museums for technology?
