Description

The seminar provides basic knowledge on the subject of museums in theory and practice. Based on ICOM Code of Ethics, the current museum definition and the catalog of criteria of the Austrian Museum Quality Seal, fundamental topics concerning the institution museum will be dealt with and discussed. Excursions to different museums in Vienna provide insights into practical museum work and offer the opportunity to look behind the scenes and actively engage in dialogue with people from different fields and institutions. The course is especially aimed at first-semester students of the master's program Expanded Museum Studies. In the summer semester, a second part building on this seminar will be offered under the title "Hands-on Regional Museum".
