Museum in ¿Motion? intends to trace the history of the critical correlation between contemporary art and the museum, to chart the various institutional responses, and to place this within the broader context of socio-political changes. The title literally refers to one of the most important publications of the 1970s on the museum discussion of that era: Museum in ¿Motion? The modern art museum at issue / Museum in ¿Beweging? Het museum voor moderne kunst ter diskussie, published in 1979. Speakers will discuss the fundamental changes that have occurred since its publication precisely one quarter of a century ago.

Are museums still confronted with the same problems? When precisely did the dream of the mobile or living museum come into being? Which forms and strategies of mobility have so far been developed? Where does the real motion stop and rhetoric come in? Is the critical relationship between art and the museum still a subject of discussion? Do the massive socio-political changes in our society confront the museum with a much bigger challenge? How are we to define the future role of the museum of contemporary art, being a pre-eminent public institution?

The conference Museum in ¿Motion? comprises two meeting formats. On Friday 12 November, a symposium with invited speakers is held at Museum Het Domein in Sittard. On Saturday 13 November, a seminar is organized that presents three sessions, two of which are based on an international call for papers, and a third on the results of a closed architecture competition at the Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht.
