"The Museum in my Pocket"
Digitalization at the Museum of Black Civilizations in Dakar and Beyond
Samba Sanghott, Technical Director of the Museum of Black Civilizations in Dakar and Alena van Wahnem, a master's student in social and cultural anthropology in Frankfurt/M and Paris, discuss in this chapter different digital alternatives for visiting museums in a new way - both in physical exhibitions and in virtual spaces: Which options are desirable, which are not, and how do they affect the way we relate to museums? Finally, how does the Dakar Museum of Black Civilizations position itself in this regard? In their conversation they try to answer these questions and share their experiences and personal opinions on the matter.
