Cultuur als vernieuwende kracht
The International Museum of Political Violence in Rotterdam explores the wide spectrum of political violence throughout history through visual arts, design, multimedia, and (educational) technology.
The Museum is a permanent exploration of the arts and sciences in security history. The Museum is interested in the causes, dynamics and impact of political violence and asymmetric war. The Museum is established to actively engage with our neighborhood, educational institutions, public and private partners and society at large. Our primary goal is to develop vital reactions and answers to 21st century challenges in the security environment and cultural landscapes of global cities. The Museum explores this spectrum from non-violent resistance and protests to terrorism, coupe d’etat, and civil wars.
The changing geopolitics and security environment poses complex challenges for the international community. An understanding of historical and contemporary political violence – and subsequent changes in citizen-state relations – can support efforts to create free and just societies. To play a role in shaping the future, citizens must have a better understanding of the past and present.
The International Museum of Political Violence is a unique concept and one-of-a-kind museum in the world, due to its international perspective on various forms of political violence. The e-learning platform provides unique learning experiences that enables critical thinking on citizenship and political violence through a 360 and virtual museum and ‘offline’ exhibition space, mini-documentaries, lectures, online textbooks, assignments and interactive websites.
De gemeente Rotterdam is niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van het plan.
