Museums today are increasingly looking for contact with the city, with their immediate environment. However, what is this ‘immediate environment’? Have there been any essential changes over recent decades in our understanding of what this means? What, in fact, is the space of the museum? What, in fact, is its shell? No longer is this merely the museum’s building; it is, at the same time, the city – both the local physical city and the global virtual city. Therefore, who exactly can be the audience of this museum, which covers so many spaces at once? Who are our citizens?
 
CIMAM’S 2011 ANNUAL CONFERENCE ‘MUSEUMS AND THE CITY’ WILL BE HELD NOVEMBER 14-16 IN LJUBLJANA AND ZAGREB, WITH A POST-CONFERENCE TOUR TO SARAJEVO. ORGANIZED IN COLLABORATION WITH MODERNA GALERIJA, MUZEJ SUVREMENE UMJETNOSTI MSU AND ARS AEVI, WE EXPECT AN AUDIENCE OF AROUND 170 MUSEUM DIRECTORS AND CURATORS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
