Can the museum today still be understood as a place of isolated contemplation or rather as a place of social interaction? And what happens to this place when social interactions can no longer take place there?
The Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus in Munich opened the exhibition of installation artist Sheela Gowda online on March 31, 2020. How can digital offerings and social media successfully complement and enhance museum visits? What problems can arise simultaneously as a result? These questions are discussed by Dr. Rupert Keim, Managing Partner of Karl & Faber Fine Art Auctions, in an interview with Dr. Matthias Mühling – Director Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus and Kunstbau Munich.
