The museum as a social space

nur für Incom-Mitglieder

This class, targeted towards MA-level students as well as BA students in the „2. Studienabschnitt“ of any design program, delves into the concept of „The Museum as a Social Space“ through a hands-on and co-creative approach, blending theoretical exploration with practical application.

Participants will engage in the creative process of conceptualizing, designing, and prototyping interactive exhibits and installations that reimagine the museum not just as a place for individual reflection, but as a vibrant social hub.

We will also reflect on concepts of „Third Spaces“ (Ray Oldenburg) as well as the „Participatory Museum“ (Nina Simon),  examining how these ideas can inform and enhance museum experiences in contemporary settings.

I'm happy to announce our collaboration with the Berliner Stadtmuseum ( Constanze Schröder (Leitung Fachteam Outreach und Vermittlung) and Sebastian Ruff (Leitung Fachteam eCulture) are well-respected experts in the area of this class and will give us feedback on our progress. This partnership is particularly exciting because it allows us to contribute to the redesign of the Märkische Museum, an iconic institution currently closed for a comprehensive three-year transformation. Furthermore, this collaboration offers us the unique opportunity (most likely) to test our prototypes in an actual museum setting, bridging the gap between theory and practice.
