The Future Museum: Digital Replicas, Virtual Reality and Storytelling for a New Audience
Kel O'Neill (Director and Producer Jongsma + O'Neill)
With an introduction by Liselore Tissen
How can European museums reckon with the crimes and misuses of power that built their collections? And what will those museums look like once the scales have been balanced and restitution claims have been honored?
These are the animating questions behind Loot —10 Stories, an innovative new exhibition from The Mauritshuis that uses cutting-edge storytelling techniques to address the topics of looted art and restitution.
In this talk, Loot — 10 Stories Guest Curator and Creative Lead Kel O'Neill discusses the journey that he went through to bring the exhibition from concept to execution.
