Over ten sessions, the course considers the major issues involved in rethinking the role of the museum, its programme and collection, and how its activities sit within a shifting cultural landscape.

Organised around a series of unique presentations by Tate staff on emergent programmes and practices, the course introduces and analyses key themes concerning the future of the museum. Modes of experimentation, critique and participation, and the role of architecture, globalization, digital technology and government policy, are all addressed in a detailed examination of how museums might develop and the transformation of Tate Modern in particular.

About the course
Led by Dr Richard Martin, this course emphasises an international perspective, assessing Tate and other institutions within the global social and cultural dynamics of the early twenty-first century. Tate’s own prospects for the future are explored in discussion and engagement with key members of staff, from departments including Curatorial, Learning, Development and Research.
Sessions also include short lectures, group discussions, participant presentations, and visits to the collection displays at both Tate Modern and Tate Britain accompany the seminar discussions.

No prior knowledge of art history or museum studies is necessary. Participants will be encouraged to engage with a variety of written and visual material, and to discuss their own interpretations in a warm, dynamic and supportive setting.
