The publication is based on the international seminar It’s All Mediating, organised in May 2012. It concentrates on the problematic relationship between two basic functions of a museum: exhibitions and public engagement. The seminar concentrated on questions about how the aims of museum curators and public engagement professionals both agree and disagree, how they distribute their work, what their core values are, and how collaboration between the two professions can be improved. The seminar was organised together with The Finnish Society for Curators, Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Finnish Museums Association, and Aalto University’s Master’s Programme in Curating, Managing and Mediating Art (CuMMA), with support from The Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki Art Museum, Pori Art Museum, and Rauma Art Museum.
