The Union of Museums for night theme choose “Museums and Contested Histories: Saying Unspeakable in museums”, which is the theme of the year chosen by ICOM. Museums ask fundamental questions about any society by providing tools that encourage critical reflection on the issues of memory that shape it or tear it apart.
