Culturetown – Never waste a good crisis
As the director of the Berlin Museum of Now (MON), Denis Leo Hegic works outside the established framework of museology. MON is a traveling house that does not limit its activities to the interior but understands the whole city as a living museum. With the advent of the pandemic and the closure of cultural sites, this understanding of outdoor art and culture has become extremely important. The art and culture that took place in urban spaces were – for long periods – the only cultural content that the public had the opportunity to experience. Here we recognize the importance of art and culture as an indisputable parameter in the sustainable planning of the intelligent city of the future.
