To whom do the collections belong?

To whom do the colletions belong? Who is responsible for preserving them, telling their story and exhibiting them? Their position has become an issue: how did their history come to be preserved in a particular location?...The scope of the topic is such that we do not aim to cover everything but rather to open up the debate to arange of expertise that will contribute to identifying the issues at stake and specifying the responsibilities of all parties. The outlines of a new way of working in museums are undoubtedly taking shape.
