Formidlingsseminar 2014 “Why exhibitions” Onsdag den 12/3-2014 

The National Museum of emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan), opened in 2001 in Tokyo, Japan, and is a new type of science museum, that provides an open forum for all to ponder and discuss the future roles of science and technology featuring the latest, cutting-edge science and technology. This presentation will introduce a process of creating exhibitions for Miraikan. One of the examples is “Songs of Anagura” – a permanent exhibition about information technology, that has been created from a colla boration among scientists, engineers, game designers and exhibition planners of the museum.

By taking a close look at challenging examples, this presentation will explore a possibility of science museum as a field of co-creation.
