Changing Interpretations, Meanings and Concepts of Heritage

2020 marks 100 years since the establishment of the present borderline between Denmark and Germany. The Danish and German Governments have signed a mutual agreement on a Year of Cultural Friendship between Denmark and Germany in 2020. This Year of Cultural Friendship designates the peaceful relations between the two countries today by focusing on cultural exchange while at the same time highlighting their historical and common European roots.

ICOM Germany, ICOM Denmark and the Danish Ministry for Culture, together with the Stiftung Historische Museen Hamburg, celebrate the Year of Cultural Friendship 2020 with a conference on the Changing Interpretations, Meanings and Concepts of Heritage. The conference explores how new and different interpretations of heritage have emerged and developed in a global context. It aims to present and discuss examples and approaches of changing interpretations and meanings of heritage and the challenges and controversies these entail.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Hamburg!
