Portrait of Manuel-Segade. Aad-Hoogendoorn.

"We live a transcendental moment for the history of museum practices: we need to show the importance of our domain, we need to prove how valuable our institutions are for democracy and citizenry, we need to address the ongoing crisis and serve as touchstones of common meaning. I firmly believe in togetherness, a community sense is the only way to do this right. That's the reason I want to become a CIMAM member."
