CODART Conversations is a series of recorded conversations between five CODART members from various countries discussing the current situation and the impact on their museums. The series currently has two episodes (June and October) and more may follow in the upcoming months.
CODART Conversations II (October 2020)
In this video Bart Cornelis (The National Gallery, London), Dolores Delgado (Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid), Carina Fryklund (Nationalmuseum, Stockholm), and Anne van Oosterwijk (Musea Brugge) talk about the effects of COVID-19 on their museums during the past months. They tell about their plans and expectations for the months to come and what new developments they have witnessed. Amongst the subjects are the stronger focus on permanent collections and the (de)installation of exhibitions without couriers physically present. The discussion is moderated by Adam Eaker (Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York).
CODART Conversations I (June 2020)
In the first CODART Conversations, five CODART members from various countries talk about about COVID-19, the protests following the death of George Floyd, international loans and exhibitions, and the future of blockbuster exhibitions. The video was made available on 14 June 2020 to mark the opening of the CODART Congress Online, a virtual alternative to the Congress that would have taken place in Stockholm on these dates.
The video features Mark Evans (Victoria and Albert Museum, London), Robert Schindler (Birmingham Museum of Art, Birmingham, Alabama), Anja Sevčík (Wallraf-Richartz-Museum & Fondation Corboud, Cologne), and Júlia Tátrai (Szépmüvészeti Múzeum, Budapest). The discussion is moderated by Micha Leeflang (Museum Catharijneconvent, Utrecht).
