Contemporary art installations evoke memories and create new contexts to buildings, places, and institutions. In view of the worldwide debate about the role of museums and the significance of art in public space, we invited practitioners and academics to discuss the role of temporary art installations in and around museums: Kate Bonansinga (University of Cincinnati) is a curator and researcher in the fields of Contemporary art, art in public space, and museum practice. Shanay Jhaveri is a curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and - among other exhibitions - curated the 2021 façade commission as well as the rooftop commission in the same year. German Artist Mischa Kuball’s work res.o.nant at the Jewish Museum Berlin serves as a reference point and context to this discussion, along with other works on display at 1014.
