As a part of the provision in the draft of a new Definition of the Museum, the debate in September last year in Kyoto by the General Assembly of ICOM, the world Association of museums, and to the year 2021 has been postponed is. The German section of ICOM has in the meantime asked its members to the Text of the draft, and to each of the text block, as well as to all the elements of the current version of the Definition from the year 1974.
it Is important to say from the Museum in an official Definition that it is a polyphonic place? 147 German members of ICOM – individuals who do not speak for their museums – have answered in the affirmative the question of 101 in the negative. The small-scale procedure has inevitably led to the result of the survey is, how the Museum should be: a lot of voices.
