COP 3: CHANGE OF PERSPECTIVE THROUGH INTERNATIONAL
AND INTERDISCIPLINARY EXCHANGE AND COOPERATION
The concept of COP can realize its full potential within a given local set- ting if the museums in question operate within interdisciplinary, interna- tional and transcultural networks.
On the one hand, museum work has to acquire a more interna- tional outlook to gain deeper insight into new – especially transregional – issues, topics, methods, and means of representation. In this case, COP implies tearing down regional and national borders for the bene t of a European and global perspective. On the other hand, interdisciplinary co- operation between museum experts, scenographers, experts in History Didactics and museums educators, music designers, media experts, and cultural producers, as well as visitors can create new perspectives and tear down borders to leave familiar patterns of interpretation be- hind and to deploy hitherto unheard-of ideas and views on local museum objects. In this way, local museums can be turned into places where European heritage can function as a place for constructive dialogue in a multicultural society.
