salon kulturvermittlung

In March 2012, salon kulturvermittlung was created as virtual space for discussions and as a store for relevant documents, bibliography and links.

Initiated by Gabriele Stöger und Eva Kolm and funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture during the first year, salon kulturvermittlung provided a forum for the research on the conceptual background and theoretical foundations of cultural mediation in Austria. The position of 15 authors served as preliminary for a symposium entitled “Theorien-Thé” (antiquated for a “tea party disputing theories”), which took place in March at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in real space and was documented online.

Inputs to the forum so far contribute to questions on methods, cultural policy standards, and references to different branches of science (pedagogy, psychology, sociology, philosophy etc.), which feed into the practice of arts and cultural mediation. Please feel free to comment all available articles online.

Linking to KulturAgenda now provides the opportunity to carry on with the discussions and to extend the debate to other subjects. salon kulturvermittlung is open for your visit at any time. Stroll along, browse or read, feel inspired to make a comment or to write an article.

We are looking forward to your visit.

Ein Museum für Besucher. Theorie und Praxis zum besucherorientierten Arbeiten im Museum


Date: 02.02.2011


Seminar für Haupt- und ehrenamtliche Mitarbeiter/innen der Museen und Sammlungen in Südtirol, die im Bereich Besucher/innenservice tätig sind. / Seminar for Employees and Volunteers in Museums and Collections in South Tyrol who work in Visitor Services.

MMag. Irene Knava und Mag. Christian Waltl MA

Abstract: Die primäre Aufgabe von Museen galt ursprünglich den Sammlungen. Erst in der letzten Zeit hat die Ausrichtung auf unterschiedliche Besuchergruppen zunehmend an Bedeutung gewonnen und es stellt sich die Frage, inwieweit sich Museumsarbeit überhaupt nach den Bedürfnissen der Besucher/innen richten kann? Fragen die weitere Fragen aufwerfen besonders nach den unterschiedlichen Zielgruppen und der gesellschaftlichen Verantwortung von Museen im Allgemeinen. Welche Herausforderungen erwarten dahingehend kleinere und regionale Museen, die im Wandel des Verhältnisses von  Museum und Publikum sowohl eine Gefahr als auch eine Chance sehen?



2009 “Slovenian Museums Evaluation 2009”

In 2009, KulturAgenda was contracted to evaluate Slovenia’s 47 state-funded museums. A status analysis was performed of all services provided in the period 2006 – 2008, and a comparative analysis was performed using best practice models and performance indicators. The aim was to professionalise the Slovenian museum sector and to prepare a generally applicable and comparable museum standard.

The 3-volume report has been published on the website of the Ministry for Culture and the Slovene translation was also printed.
