Abstract

Despite the museum playing a central role in society as public centre of collective memory, artefacts are dogmatically presented in highly introverted "white cubes". In response, the Leiden Civic Museum relies on a strong relationship between "content" and "context" in order to both reassure its collection of societal relevance, as well as to offer visitors a more stimulating museum experience.
