33rd SIBMAS CONFERENCE

The Executive Committee of SIBMAS and the Organisational Committee are looking forward to welcome you in Warsaw for our next SIBMAS Conference which will take place in spring 2022.

Performing the future. Institutions and politics of memory.

The 33th SIBMAS Conference will focus on the following issues:

  • Facts, emotions, narratives – ideas and practices of a narrative museum.
  • Museums, archives and libraries as an interactive space – how to develop a relationship with visitors, practitioners of performing arts, and collectively contribute to an open society.
  • Marketing and collection – developing exhibitions and an image for a library or collection.
  • Theatre heritage institutions and the politics of memory – what narratives do we need and for what purpose?
  • Canonical and alternative approaches to the archives and library collections on performing arts.
  • Body and archive – documenting of “unpreservable” by museums, archives, libraries or artists themselves.
  • Performing the past/reviving the narrative – collaboration between archives, museums, libraries on the one hand and artists on the other.
  • The impact of policies, politics, and conventions on theatre and performing arts practices as well as its preservation.
  • Ecology in the library, archive and museum – practicing care for the Earth; how do perform jobs and help save the planet
