Museums and Cultural Landscapes
Landscapes are culture before they are nature; constructs of the imagination...Simon Schama in Landscape and Memory
Milan: A tale of two cities
Suay Aksoy, our former Chair, was elected President of ICOM.
Our conference formed part of ICOM's triennial meeting. The theme of museums and cultural landscapes was a pretty wide ranging one and it gave us the opportunity to explore a whole variety of topics from Amsterdam's Red Light district to repairing Sophia's cultural fabric.
We were joined by three of ICOM's international committees: ICOFOM (museology), ICAMT (architecture and museum techniques), ICR (regional museums); and MINOM, an ICOM affiliated organisation concerned with social and cultural change.
