Museums were once criticised as old-fashioned institutions, but are today at the centre of international geopolitical questions. The role of ICOM has also changed. It was founded in 1946 by a small group of professionals, and now gathers some 36,000 members from an array of backgrounds.
The Where ICOM from exhibition retraces the main steps in the shaping of ICOM and museums, and raises questions on the institution’s future. It offers a path through a number of ICOM activities. The Where ICOM from exhibition is an unfinished story, made up of a selection of testimonies, archives and documents.
Where ICOM from – 70th anniversary, 4-6 July 2016, to be displayed during the ICOM 24th General Conference, MiCO Milano congressi, Blue room, Hall B, 1st floor.
