CAMOC (the Committee for Collections and Activities of Museums of Cities) will organize its 2011 Conference in collaboration with COMCOL and ICOM-Europe. The main theme of the conference, shared by all three committees, is “Participative Strategies”, whereas the phrase “Capturing the Changing Urban World” reflects CAMOC’s focus on urban matters.
The ICOM International Committee for the Collections and Activities of Museums of Cities (CAMOC) has the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the International Conference on Participative Strategies in Documenting the Changing Urban World, which they will organize in Berlin, 31 Oct.-3 Nov. 2011. The first two days of the conference will be organized jointly with the International Committee on Collecting (COMCOL) and the ICOM Regional Committee for Europe.
During the first two days the meeting will be jointly held at the Museum of European Culture (Museum Europäisher Kulturen) at Dahlem, in south western Berlin and, on the third day, CAMOC will meet at the Kreuzberg Museum (www.kreuzberg.museum de ) and the Bookshop Pro qm, (www.pro-qm.de), a themed bookshop on the city of Berlin, politics, pop, economic commentary, architecture, design, art & theory, which is meant to be a forum for public discussion and movement. Evening museum visits and receptions are planned at the Museum of Asian Art, Ethnological Museum, the Deutsches Historisches Museum and the Nikolaikirche of the Stadtmuseum Berlin.
International keynote speakers will set the context for discussion and the exchange of experience on the first day of the conference, and CAMOC delegates are invited to submit proposals for presentations reflecting the three specific themes of the conference set out in detail below.
The programme will be also enriched with site specific tours and discussions moderated by CAMOC members.
Our aim and wish is to organise a memorable meeting in Berlin. Come and join us!
