The Network of European Museum Organisations (NEMO) is researching the short and long term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on museums.
Initial results of the research up to 3 April encompassing 650 museums in 41 countries show it is clear things won’t be getting back to normal in a hurry. Online museums can’t replace the experience which physically visiting a place offers us. But it can give us a glimpse of how culture is looking ways to get closer to us.
For this month we have five suggestions for you if you’d like to discover something new.
Ethnographic Museum Istria - What Are You Afraid Of? Fear In Our Everyday Lives.
This exhibition looks at the emotion of fear which affects people regardless of their cultural, social and historical context.
