Future Human Visionaries #12 — Jan Boelen on the multidimensional museum
Welcome to Visionaries, a podcast dedicated to futurological thinkers brought to you by Future Human and the V&A. We seek out people who are reimagining innovation in their field and ask them to apply their intelligence to emerging trends. Jan Boelen is a Belgian art curator and academic who is the director of the Z33 gallery in Hassalt, Belgium. Z33 run art exhibitions that imagine future societies and the issues they will face. He describes the tension between physical and digital experience in our everyday lives, and how this is shaping contemporary artwork. How are museums making themselves a multidimensional experience for visitors? Is the idea of the ‘post-institutional’ museum just a fanciful dream? And is there a danger that the complex ambitions of modern cultural institutions will alienate visitors? Presented by Ben Beaumont-Thomas.
