Panel abstract

In recent years, ethnographic museums have been searching for possible ways to justify their existence. Many are changing their names and becoming centers of "world arts and culture". They experience new performance spaces and dialogical modes of presentation. This panel seeks to discuss these new ways of showing and translating cultures in these museal spaces. These recent processes in museum contexts, especially those concerned with cross-cultural translation? What is the approach to co-design of collaborative museums, using ethnography, co-creation workshops. This panel discusses an approach to enter the processes used in collaborative museums. Where an ethnography with co-creation workshops appears, among other anthropological methods and human-centered design. Emphasizing the creation of immersive and collaborative experiences, thus providing a justification for involving carefully selected native and multidisciplinary teams and users throughout R&D, pointing out their value and limitations. This panel brings the discussion to the institutional context by presenting methods that can support collaborative actions in ethnographic museums.
