The museums participating on the project aim at re-evaluating and rethinking their resources: archives, collections and working methods in order to develop their potentials by creating knowledge and connecting the various types of audiences. The traditional roles of the contemporary art museum are changing: its most important activities are no longer merely storage, studying and exhibiting of artworks, but also an active involvement with the museum’s audience. For this reason, the project will develop combination of exhibitions ans educational programs based on participatory approach, intended for both, the audience and the staff.

The exhibition Performing the Museum (Muzej v gibanju) is taking place in the frame of the international project. The two-year project is focused on the role of the contemporary museum. Nowadays, the museum is no longer just an institution storing, studying and exhibiting artworks, but rather an institution that actively participates with its audiences. Hence, the project is developing a combination of exhibitions, educational programmes and activities based on a participatory approach, creating knowledge and introducing new models of mediating art. The project is supported by the European Union as part of its Creative Europe programme.
