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.
