Access, inclusion, diversity, human rights, ecological approach and social responsibility
Diversity, inclusion, human rights, sustainability, social responsibility are words that today we increasingly see in the description of projects for visitors to art museums. This set of values is denoted in Russian by the familiar word “sustainability”. But how do the heads of cultural and art institutions in Russia and abroad understand "sustainability"? What changes does this promise museum institutions in the near and long term? What does women's rights and inclusion have to do with it? The discussion will take place within the framework of the V International Inclusive Festival of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and the interdisciplinary program of the personal exhibition of Xenia Hausner in the Gallery of 19th-20th century European and American art.
