MVRDV's Chinese Comic and Animation Museum part of the Musées du XXIe Siècle exhibition at the Musee d’art et d’histoire in Geneva

Yesterday, Musee d’Art et d’Histoire in Geneva Switserland opened its new exhibition "Musées du XXIe Siècle, visions, ambitions, défis". 

The Exhibition cosiders the "new museum" to refer to the intersection of museology and museum architecture, as the embodiment of what the museum might look like in the future and what its functions will be. The exhibition invites visitors to examine and envision the ways in which museums influence and shape local communities, how they function as interlocutors for societal change and how they carry intentions for the future.

Part of the exhibition is the model, made by Made by Mistake, of MVRDV's design for the China Comic and Animation Museum in Hangzhou. 

The exhibition runs until the 20th of August. Click here to find out more about the exhibition and how to get there.
