ICOM Germany and ICOM Nord jointly organize a conference in Helsingborg, Sweden, on September 21–23, 2017 with the theme “Difficult issues”.

Museums play a key role in creating and representing the shared cultural heritage of various communities. What is to be said about the stories museums facilitate? Why is something remembered and something else forgotten? What is highlighted, what hidden? What does restrict museums’ freedom to act and / or do we restrict ourselves? What are the roles of public and local societies? Are museums prisoners of their own familiar practices and processes?

Six national committees of the International Council of Museums – ICOM Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Germany – jointly invite to a conference addressing demanding issues for today’s museums and museum professionals. The conference will gather a large group of experts from these countries, where commonly shared culture and history reflect the ways we approach, collect and present cultural heritage.
