  • Museum as interactive space – how to develop a relationship with visitors and collectively contribute to open society.
  • Museums and the politics of memory – what narratives do we need and what for?
  • Canonical and alternative approaches to archive.
  • Body and archive – documenting of the unpreservable.
  • Performing the past/reviving the narrative – on the collaboration between archives and artists.
  • Practicing care for the Earth – how to do all this without harming our planet.
