Focus

Focus on diversity. What does diversity mean for museums?

A masterclass in collaboration with the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva

29.6.2022 | 18:30 – 20:00

with Seraina Rohrer, Idil Efe and Rebecca Amsellem (Modération)

As a platform for reflection and debate, museums pay attention to the multiplicity of voices and perspectives and are increasingly striving to embed diversity in their work. But what does diversity mean for culture and for museums? How can it be interpreted, implemented and shared widely? Where is there a special need? What challenges does it pose for museums in terms of their collections, educational formats and narratives, but also with regard to the management of organisational structures and personnel departments as a company?

The masterclass entitled Focus on diversity. What does diversity mean for museums? is an event jointly organised by the National Museum Zurich and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum (MICR) in Geneva.
The conversation involving French-Canadian economist and feminist Rebecca Amsellem, diversity agent and curator of the Berlin City Museum Idil Efe, and Seraina Rohrer, who is Head of Innovation & Society at Pro Helvetia, will explore some of the challenges of diversity from an international perspective.

The discussion, which will be conducted in English, will be introduced by Denise Tonella, Director of the Swiss National Museum, and Pascal Hufschmid, Director of the MICR in Geneva.

Entry 18:00 Uhr

National Museum Zurich | Auditorium Willy G. S. Hirzel

The event will be held in English
