The aim of the panel discussion is to place the themes and practices of the Inside Installation project within a broader discussion concerning the role of the museum for contemporary art. Is it possible to distinguish between several positions or approaches concerning the preservation and presentation of installation art and what –if thought through- are the consequences for the museum? Argued from the context of preservation and presentation of contemporary art; what should the ideal museum be like?
