Dezeen are hosting a book launch to discuss some of the themes raised by Amos Rex Art Museum – JKMM Architects. What type of urban landmark should a museum be in the 21st century? How should museums connect with the residents of a city? Can they be a catalyst for vibrant urban cultures? What do ever-more travelled tourists expect to find in a museum? And who are our new museums really for?
These and other questions will be discussed by an expert panel chaired by Dezeen’s Deputy Editor, Cajsa Carlson. The panelists are: Lars Nittve, named by Le Nouvel Observateur as one of ‘The Fifty Who Changed the World’ and for many years ranked as one of the top 10 museum directors in the world; Priya Khanchandani, British writer, curator and head of curatorial at the Design Museum in London; Karoliina Hellberg, renewed Finnish artist exhibiting at the Amos Rex Museum as part of the ‘Between Us’ group exhibition (12 May–5 September 2021)
Tuesday May 25, at 19.00 Finnish time (18.00 Central European Summer Time/ 17 BST)
