Ethics and making history available – time for a new debate about museum ethics?

Hökens Gata 11
29 mars 18:30 - 19:45 CET
  • Detta evenemang har redan ägt rum.

In everyday work, museums often face ethical questions and challenges: in contact with informants; in the handling of artefacts, narratives and presentations. What ethical issues do the museums encounter in relation to registration and presentation of historical material, of difficult and personal stories? Meet Kathrin Pabst, Armando Perla and Anna Ulfstrand in conversation with Helene Larsson Pousette.

The conversation will be in English.

Detta är en del av den månadslånga invigningen av Stockholms Kvinnohistoriska, 1-31 mars på Hökens Gata 11 i Stockholm (och flera andra ställen). Lokalen är liten och antalet platser mycket begränsat, ingen förbokning. Alla programpunkter är kostnadsfria och dokumenteras för arkiv och tillgänglighet – och är ett sätt för oss att se vad som fungerar och vad som blir bra. Stockholms Kvinnohistoriska ska erbjuda museiverksamhet över hela staden, utan en egen permanent byggnad. Med stöd av Stockholms stad.
