a new voice

The first issue of Museion Bulletin is here: a new voice that delves below the surface of the Museion program to establish a more independent institutional consciousness based on the local area’s active and diverse cultural ecosystem. Each issue is theme-driven and collects personal perspectives from inside and outside the museum that range from cultural memory to the social debates and inter-disciplinary alliances that impact today’s cultural landscape.

Museion Bulletin will generate regular content in the form of articles, extended captions, interviews and other material. The current and upcoming exhibitions at Museion, of Sonia Leimer, Christian Chironi and Erling Kagge’s private collection, share a loose affinity when it comes to exploration, movement and memory. For this reason, we have chosen these interests as our inspiration for the first issues of the Bulletin, in which we will explore ideas of community,  interaction, borders and the sustainability of human action.
