JOINT ONLINE CONFERENCE ICETHICS / ICMEMO Conference
8 am (EDT) New York / 2 pm (CET) Paris / 10 pm (JST) Kyoto
How far should museums stretch or compromise when politics or politicians in charge demand approaches which are not sound in light of professional standards?
What about the personal integrity of museum professionals towards their field and social responsibility? Who can they turn to for help, if needed?
In short: Where is the line drawn for the museum professional when torn between partisan political interests and the profession’s standards? How can the museum community protect its standards and support its members?
