Background

National identity and historical awareness are relevant issues in the context of a multicultural society and the development towards a European citizenship. Museums are increasingly called upon to actively convey a sense of national history and identity to the people. How can we negotiate the tensions between the presentation of autonomous art and this educative assignment? How do museums deal with the multicultural backgrounds of the audience that they are supposed to serve?
