Why do people visit museums, who feels addressed, who is excluded? Can collections that are primarily dedicated to the preservation of cultural and natural heritage and the communication of knowledge also foster social relationships? In order to understand the role of museums as institutions at the center of virulent social debates, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, the Museum für Naturkunde – Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Science and the Research and Documentation Centre at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin have joined forces to form the interdisciplinary research association "Museums as spaces of social cohesion". Historical perspectives are combined with empirical case studies, research-based teaching and practical interventions in order to reflect on museums and society in a fundamental and innovative way.
