Creative Collections

The digitisation of society continues, and museums are no exception. In addition to classic museum tasks such as exhibiting and preserving, the 21st century also brings new challenges. The museum must find a new place in order to be able to have an influence on society and participate in current issues. How can we design the museum together? How can the museum become more open? To do this, the museum needs a space that is easily accessible and free of charge so that everyone can address these questions together.

With the Creative Collections project, the Badisches Landesmuseum is meeting the current challenges facing museums. For us, the basis for new concept ideas was the dialogue with the future users of the museum. By supplementing the ongoing digitisation in museums with new participative formats, the step towards a museum for users can be sensibly tackled. To this end, we have set up an advisory board of interested citizens and organised a MuseumCamp. Together with the users, numerous ideas for digital formats have been developed. These must now be implemented.

As a test area for our digital formats, we chose a location that connects the Badisches Landesmuseum with the city of Karlsruhe and its citizens: the Museum at the Market Square, which is located in the heart of the city. In this way, Creative Collections receives a place of encounter and exchange for “digital natives” as well as all those interested in questions of digitisation and the museum. At the same time, together with our users, we can promote the networking of digital projects in a creative environment and foster interdisciplinary exchange.
