“Finding relevance is attempting to answer questions that put the very existence of our museum at risk.”

Tulga Beyerle, Director of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MK&G) in conversation with Abhay Adhikari, founder Digital Identities and digital partner of the NEO Collections project.

“We cannot approach relevance without ensuring our institutions have the new competencies to address themes such as climate change, diversity and inclusion, restitution and repatriation.”

“For a long time, the museum will continue to be a place of contradictions — the excitement of what we can become and the exhaustion of dealing with the present situation.”

“…we need to take risks, because there is a huge period of discovery necessary to bridge the gap between the kind of institutions we are at the present and what we need to be.”



We focus on user centered, explorative, open and reusable digital museum collections and the way they are curated, enriched and accessed.
