ICOM International Conference in Bratislava


Revolution: Velvet x Digital – 30 Years of Digital and Social Media in Museums


in collaboration with ICOM Czechia and ICOM Austria

6th and 7th of November 2019

Winter Riding Hall, Bratislava Castle and Esterházy Palace, Slovak National Gallery

Bratislava, Slovakia



The conference aims to evaluate and contextualise changes that have been moving museums and galleries towards new trends in digital and social media over the last three decades. The suggested period looking back to 1989 refers to the Velvet Revolution regarding the post-communist countries within our region. However, we invite a broader context involving speakers from countries without the traumatic Communist experience to explore the significance of social and cultural changes within our region in contrast with other countries.

Digital media and technologies have disrupted usual ways people obtain information on arts and cultural heritage, and therefore it is essential to examine new trends and possibilities across disciplines and search for successful strategies outside museum and gallery environment.
We invite you to share your experience with us.
