Bridges: a museum for a globailizing world
Abstract:Tomislav Sola is professor of museology at the University of Zagreb and a member of the jury of the European Museum of the Year Award. Furthermore, he is a visionary, as this article so amply demonstrates. In his recent book Essays on Museums and their Theory: Towards a Cybernetic Museum he set out his views that the museum must correspond to a humanist concept of the heritage and should serve as a tool of development and public service. For him, the museum exists not only to mirror our identity but also to provide the critical insight that enables us constantly to re-evaluate the past. The museum he imagines below has not yet been created, but Sola's dream is well worth sharing.
