Practicing Sustainability 

Thinking about the museum of the future, sustainability certainly plays a big part. The awareness is present, but what can museums actually do to act sustainably? Should the quality of art be evaluated according to the criterion of environmental compatibility? What are the risks and chances of using emerging technologies in arts and culture with regard to climate change? These and other questions will be discussed with our speakers. The talk will be held in English. Users can participate live via crowdcast, ask questions and join in the discussion.
