A new way of thinking...making a museum

A museum or an exhibition is not made with objects, it is made with people. People who created the objects; people who study, who research, who conserve; people who display; people who visit and learn.

Making a museum means dealing with people, learning and understanding their desires, expectations, needs…

Making a museum means listening: first of all to the objects and to the display space display and understanding their multiple meanings.

Making a museum means talking at length: with directors, with curators, with conservators; with administrators; with architects, graphic designers, technicians… with people and communities.

Making a museum means telling the stories that after all the listening and the talking can be added to the history of the objects.
