Blandine Smilansky kicked off the webinar with a general introduction to the House of European History and its approach to collecting, curating and communicating history in a European way. The second speaker Raluca Bem Neamu focused on the museum’s latest outreach initiative – the touring exhibition Fake (f)or Real. The aim of the initiative is to bring the exhibition to other countries and in this way reach audiences who otherwise would not be able to visit the House of European History in Brussels. HEH is hoping to tour the exhibition at 9 museums in the European Union in the period 2023-2026 and interested museums are welcome to get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fake (fo)r Real is a turnkey exhibition, meaning that the hosting museum will be provided all of the material translated into the local language. The exhibition includes 60 objects from the collection, multimedia, games and mechanical interactives.
