OUR MANY EUROPES
Our Many Europes is a current program of the L’Internationale (2018-2022), a confederation of seven European museums co-financed by the European Commission’s Creative Europe Culture Programme. The partners of the project are the Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (M HKA, Antwerp, Belgium), Moderna galerija (MG+MSUM, Ljubljana, Slovenia), the Van Abbemuseum (VAM, Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS, Madrid, Spain), Muzeum Sztuki Nowoczesnej w Warszawie (MSNW, Warsaw, Poland), SALT Research and programs (SALT, Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey), and Museu d’art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA, Barcelona, Spain), and partners the National College of Art and Design (NCAD, Dublin, Ireland) and the Valand Academy, Gothenburg University (VA, Gothenburg, Sweden). With its wide-ranging schedule of lectures, exhibitions and education initiatives, the Our Many Europes project seeks to advocate a more active role for visitors, studying more innovative forms of participation and considering the input of new technology.
