This book is the outcome of the 2017 edition of the Verbier Art Summit last January, organized in cooperation with museum director Beautrix Ruf and her curatorial team at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. By sharing the content of the Summit through this publication the global dialogue continues.
The theme of the Verbier Art Summit and this accompanying publication, SIZE MATTERS! (DE)GROWTH OF THE 21ST CENTURY ART MUSEUM has been chosen by museum director Beatrix Ruf.
It is based on her personal experiences with the transformations of these institutes and their corresponding increase in scale, but also about issues that every museum is faced with, struggles with, reflects on how to address, and considers in a self-critical way.
The realization of the 2018 Verbier Art Summit (Jan. 18- Jan. 20) will be in the hands of museum director Daniel Birnbaum of the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden.
