Museographies. Ways of seeing art

 

The Bilbao Fine Arts Museum, the Fundación Gondra Barandiarán and the Universidad de Deusto are presenting the first edition of the summer course "Museographies. Ways of seeing art". Taking place in June, this 3-day course will offer an intensive academic programme directed by Miguel Zugaza. Its principal aim is to analyse different issues relating to new trends in current museography, a term used in this context to encompass the group of practices and new narratives – or "ways of seeing", to cite John Berger's phrase from his celebrated essay – which are employed in museums in their role as spaces for the conservation, display, study and dissemination of cultural goods.
