FUTURE CONFERENCE FOR THE MUSEUM'S 15TH ANNIVERSARY October 8, 2017, PINAKOTHEK DER MODERNE, with 7,200 VISITORS AT TOGETTHERE_XPERIENCE The completely new event concept and the overall conceptual and visual image appealed to a wide audience in many ways. The concept was called "participation", i.e. the audience was involved on an emotional AND intellectual level. And it was called "hospitality". On the one hand, the audience was enthusiastic about the variety of activities in all four museums in the house. On the other hand, many visitors followed the individual program items devised and organized by Dietlinde Behncke and Miro Craemer with great concentration and for a longer period of time. HIGH WIRE showed, among other things, that community can carry the individual: many visitors pulled on ropes that ultimately carried a person in the middle. The ART POINTS with actors around the director Matthias Beier enabled a dialogue on selected exhibits from the four collections. In cooperation with the Otto Falckenberg School, an interactive homage to Joseph Beuys and his “honey pump at work” took place. At the THINK-TANK-MARATHON on the grand staircase, the presenter Dietlinde Behncke gathered 28 speakers from 10 to 70 years old with short statements on five major social issues of our time - "Society", "Inequality", "Culture", "Environment / Resource" , "Conflict". In the style of a TED conference, international social start-ups such as Alex Sloan (UN World Food Program - Innovation Accelerator), researchers such as Prof. Stefan Burdach (Director Children's Hospital Munich), artists and authors, such as Yamen Hussein (PEN. Scholarship holder), also discussed “ideas worth spreading” in conversation with visitors. Prof. Gordon Cheng (TUM, Chair for Cognitive Systems / Artificial Intelligence) named the unique situation: “What ultimately distinguishes humans from robots is their humanity, their creativity. That is why we are sitting here in one of the most important museums in the world, under Olaf Metzel's “Journey to Jerusalem”. ”At the end, Maike Harms, Bavarian poetry slam master, performed the PUBLIC STATEMENT entitled“ MUT ”in front of a visibly moved audience, here.
