KCDC All Corners Internet Conversation series: Ideal Museums & Maverick as Method

date Tuesday, 25 October 2011 time 1:30 p.m.

Stephanie Sherman Pablo Frankenburg


Comparing and contrasting wide-ranging museum design research with the real life settings of Elsewhere Living Museum, we will approach the questions: What does your museum of the future look like? What would be its manifesto? How would it work? At the end of the conversation, students will be invited to pose questions to the presenters and to submit their own ideas for a zine that will be created from this conversation. . Pablo Frankenburg is a scholar of museum studies pursuing his doctorate at the University of Tuebingen, Germany. Frankenberg has been conducting research in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, asking museum consultants: What Makes the Ideal Museum?

Stephanie Sherman is co-director and Chris Kennedy is education curator at Elsewhere Living Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina. Elsewhere is a three store building housing one woman’s 58 year collection of thrift and surplus, which has become a living installation curated by hundreds of contributors over a 9 year period. Today, Elsewhere is a space to investigate creative collaboration, through community events, a residency program, and educational initiatives.
