In this event, the four-dimensional, holistic approach to sustainability will be transferred to the museum and discussed. The so-called "Green Museum" represents only one area here, even though these considerations often dominate practice. As early as the late 1970s, Herbert Gruhl sketched the picture of an emerging, inevitable eco-dictatorship [Ein Planet wird geplündert. The balance of horrors of our politics. 2nd ed. Frankfurt 1978]. Now, for some, it is slowly arriving and what does this mean for museum work?
