Political influence on museums

Since starting work on the conference theme “Can we talk? Museums facing polarisation”, we have realised its importance and complexity. Some organisations are hesitant to publicly discuss their experiences with polarising opinions and political pressure. To understand the extent of political influence, we have launched an anonymous questionnaire, open until 6 September.
