Message from the Executive Board of ICOM

"The ICOM [Executive] Board is committed to continue the work that began under Suay (Aksoy's] Presidency - to lead the global museum sector as it re-opens its doors post Covid-19, tackles decolonisation and environmental sustainability, celebrates diversity and defines the role of museums in the 21st century."

Message from the Executive Board of ICOM:

Dear Chairs of ICOM's National and International Committees, Regional Alliances, Affiliated Organisations, Standing Committees and Working Groups,

Museums have never been more necessary to society than they are today as the world’s population emerges from the aftermath of a global pandemic amidst the fight to redress social inequalities. Coming at this moment, the resignation of our esteemed President, Suay Aksoy, was unexpected. When Suay informed the Executive Board of her decision to step down from office, the Executive Board acted as required by the ICOM Statutes, 11.6 (see here) to fill the vacancy so that ICOM’s work could continue. Alberto Garlandini was elected to the position of President with Terry Nyambe of Zambia elected as co-vice president to work alongside Laishun An from China.

Suay’s resignation, in addition to two others from the Executive Board and the departure of 5 of the 22 colleagues who comprise MDPP2 are of concern to the Executive Board, the membership and the Committees. The Executive Board has welcomed the letters and comments from the National and International Committees and their perspectives on the current situation and has begun an internal review of decision-making processes and of communication between the Board, the Secretariat, the Committees and the membership to ensure greater transparency and efficiency.

We will continue to engage with the National and International Committees, the Regional Alliances, Affiliated Organisations, Standing Committees, and Working Groups to build on the outcomes of Kyoto so that, together, we can forge a constructive approach to developing a new definition for museums. Reports on these initiatives will be prepared for the meeting of the General Assembly in July.

The ICOM EB is committed to continue the work that began under Suay’s Presidency - to lead the global museum sector as it re-opens its doors post Covid-19, tackles decolonisation and environmental sustainability, celebrates diversity and defines the role of museums in the 21st century.

Sincerely,

The Executive Board of ICOM

From the board of ICOM International Committee on Ethical Dilemmas:

OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT, EXECUTIVE BOARD, AND GENERAL DIRECTOR OF ICOM
from the Board of IC Ethics, 22 June 2020

Yesterday, it became public that Suay Aksoy has resigned as president of ICOM. Her resignation, together with many others, came sudden and unexpected, and at a critical time for ICOM due to the coronavirus crisis and ongoing discussions about the new museum definition.

We are aware that different versions of what has happened, are circulating in different fora, and regard this as potentially damaging for our ICOM community.

In light of the situation at hand, IC Ethics hereby demands full transparency in the working processes that led to the sudden resignation of the former president.

This includes the immediate release of
- the minutes of all meetings of the Executive Board for the years 2019 and 2020,
- the recordings of meetings from the same period of time which are not signed by all board members,
- Suay Aksoy´s Letter of Resignation,
- the minutes of all procedures behind the election of the new president and the disposition in the statutes that regulated the election.
IC Ethics is supportive of ICOMs recent work advancing transparency, inclusion, diversity, democracy and sustainability, and we encourage all ICOM members and the leadership to continue and strengthen the work.

In the name of the Board Members of IC Ethics,
Kathrin Pabst, Chair of IC Ethics

MESSAGE FROM ICOM ZAMBIA PRESIDENT MUSEUMS DAY 2020 Dear ICOM Family in Zambia, I wish you well as the Museum fraternity throughout the world commemorates such an occasion of significant importance in our professional life, in our Exhibitions, our plans and also in our everyday life. Unfortunately the advent of the Covid 19 pandemic has robbed us of our traditional style of remembering this day but still we can’t fold our hands……We will soldier on, and with God’s Grace we will overcome it. Our theme this year is focusing on matters surrounding diversity, inequalities and inclusion .Our Human diversity and cultural differences are the epitome of beauty which we must document and exhibit through our research outcomes. Our Communities has volumes of stories and artifacts which tell interesting storylines which our visitors thirst and yearn to hear, view and enjoy. There is need to include circumstances of vulnerable marginalized groups and challenges of minority people like Albinos, the dispossessed communities and people living with disabilities in our stories, they need space in our show cases. Inequalities are visible in our societies and these are vivid through gender disparities, and the need to promote peace, justice promotes strong social institutions to address these issues as espoused in the sustainable development goals. There will be great challenges to adapt to the new normal of social distancing, quarantining, and working from home outside the sanctuaries of our collections. Covid 19 demands our initiatives, exploring minds and creativity. We must endeavor to continue our work with resilience and determination even under limited resources, technologies and infrastructure. ICOM Zambia is still inviting new members to join ICOM, and my team wishes to applaud the efforts by Nsingo Museum and Chikanta Palace Museum, the Women in History Museum Network including our friends at Nayuma Museum for keeping the story of Community Museums Alive. As president I also commend the Private Museums for bringing balance and making the importance of Museums more relevant than ever. To all the National Museums, I salute you for carrying the Zambian flag High. I wish to end by thanking the National Museums Board of Zambia for its Counsel, Support and Guidance. My prayer is that the Pandemic can be over soon to enable us host the Decolonization Conference which was scheduled for August 2020.Please remember to stay safe, let’s support the frontline workers and our leaders for every effort. The world needs us, Happy Museums Day to Everyone. EMMANUEL HAMATWI ICOM Zambia National Committee President 18 May 2018
The question of definition is a question of unique selling points. Derived from the historical genesis of the institution of the museum, I consider three aspects to be extremely important: (a) the collection of "originals" (b) the permanence of the institution (c) the question of the sphere of responsibility. This is a major challenge in transforming the definition of the museum into the 21st century: (a) What do we see as "original" in the age of digitalization and medialization? (b) Is it sustainable to question the permanence of the institution museum itself? (c) In what ways can we competently expand the scope of responsibility of the institution museum in such a manner that it remains socially relevant? And: We should clearly make a difference between #definition, #mission and #vision. Because if we formulate a expanded definition, we will exclude many museums.
