On Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 November 2022, the conference Disclosing Futures, Rethinking Heritage took place at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam. For two days, participants and visitors discussed innovation and the changing role of managing collections at heritage institutions. At the opening, Aric Chen, Het Nieuwe Instituut’s artistic director, described heritage as “a wonderfully strange and complex beast.” It is one that has so much to offer. Behrang Mousavi, Het Nieuwe Instituut’s head of Collection, said he wanted the conference to provide a platform “for discussion, questioning one another, reflection and broadening our future horizons, without losing sight of the past and the present.”
