What definition do museums need?


Look at the Proceedings of the ICOM Committees’ Day (Paris, March 10), organized by ICOM France, ICOM Germany, ICOM Europe and ICOFOM, where the elected representatives of 41 ICOM’s national and international committees exchanged views on the issue of what defines museum.


These Proceedings draw a day of reflection on a current question and include interventions by committee representatives, historical, linguistic and legal presentations on the notion of definition, and professionally moderated panel discussions.
