FLOORPLAN is a museum research group and think tank of art historians, ethnographers, anthropologists, law experts, artists and designers headed by Prof. Anne-Marie Bonnet. Within this network of specialization, we develop trans-disciplinary models of interpretation, discussion and presentation of museum collections and topics. Our main goal is to foster exchange between academia and museums, between theory and practice through workshops and conferences with external experts.
