"In these times that numbers cannot measure us is a fantastic opportunity to think about our mandates. What kind of platform can the museums be in our society? How we deal with these mandates, how does our collection look like, how is our gender balance, how is the representativeness of the program, how do we create something that is locally important right now?"

Tone Hansen, PhD, Director of Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK), Høvikodden, Norway, and panelist at CIMAM's Rapid Response Webinar #5: IN BETWEEN: How are Contemporary Art Museums and their Stakeholders Dealing with a Fluid Situation?

Rapid Response Webinars

The CIMAM board has designed a program of Rapid Response Webinars that will allow CIMAM members to continue discussing the most urgent concerns and questions affecting the modern and contemporary art museum community at this time. This initiative responds to CIMAM’s spirit and commitment to be a platform for global discussion, a space for sharing and connecting, for learning and encouraging cooperation.

Rapid Response Webinars are held every last Thursday of the month moderated by board members at different time zones and guests. They aim to provide short capsules on urgent concerns for the profession throughout the year. Rapid Response Webinars are free of cost and accessible only for CIMAM members. Sessions are recorded and posted at the Members Only section of the CIMAM website for those who missed the time.

Calendar of Webinars

  • 29 October 2020 with Malgorzata Ludwisiak and Sarah Glennie.
  • 26 November 2020 with Mami Kataoka and Eugene Tan.
