Necessity is the mother of invention and in these times of lean budgets and shifting priorities museums have to adjust to a new normal.  L ’International is a consortium of museums and cultural institutions that have decided to work collectively for five years in an attempt to develop new models for museum practice and art institutions in general. The consortium currently has a project, “The Uses of Art: on the legacy of art 1848 – 1989”, at the Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven where possible futures for our beloved institutions of art are being examined. Below are a few links to the projects and a wonderful book by Stephen Wright called ‘Towards a Lexicon of Usership.’
