The Museum Refuses to Stand Still
Abstract:Kenneth Hudson is the doyen of the international museum community, a recognized trend spotter and iconoclast. As director of the European Museum Forum, with responsibilities for the European Museum of the Year Award, the Forum Workshops and the European Museum Forum magazine, he may be said to be a one-man museum watch; his book Museums for the 1980s – A Survey of World Trends, published by UNESCO in 1977, broke new ground in describing and explaining the great changes in theory and practice that were sweeping through the museum world. For this anniversary issue, we asked him to take a close look at how museums have evolved over the past fifty years and to speculate on what the future might have in store.
