- What’s On
The conference series realized as part of the project ‘Technological Arts Preservation’— enacted through the collaboration of Sabancı University and digitalSSM Archive and Research Space — continues with the conference titled ‘The Non-Local Museum’. The conference on the future of museums will feature Prof. Peter Weibel, Chairman and CEO of ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe.
In future, the museum will not only be a collection of things (Eine Sammlung). It will also be a Versammlung, that means an assembly of people, discussing matters of the world as represented by the collection. The museum will become a platform for local visitors, but also for non-local visitors. This digital extension will turn the museum into a para-universitary institution.
Born in Odessa in 1944, Peter Weibel studied literature, medicine, logic, philosophy, and film in Paris and Vienna. He became a central figure in European media art on account of his various activities as an artist, media theorist, curator, and as a nomad between art and science. He has been the director of the ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe since 1999.
The Panel will be held in English.
