DialPast and ForBio course: The museum as third space

This course addresses the museum as a 'Third Space'; a constructed field away from the empirical field, where objects and ideas can be put together traversing time and space, and where different disciplinary backgrounds can be put in motion in order to re-explore the potentials of ideas and objects. It explores how the museum may position itself as a cutting-edge research institution that takes advantage of the particular framework given by the institution: interdisciplinary collaborations, collections, material installations and a direct relation to an audience.
