"Dusted!" – Exploring Museum Professions

In her podcast "Dusted!", graduate trainee Sofia Botvinnik looks behind the scenes of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MKG). As a "museum pro in training" she takes along the audience on her discovery tour of the museum. Discussions with colleagues from different departments provide a personal insight into their work. She looks over the shoulders of a conservator, accompanies a collection administrator into the depot, and discovers the secrets of the loan – a registrar has a complicated job! Each episode is dedicated to one of the basic tasks of a museum (acquiring, conserving, researching, exhibiting and communicating) and creates the big picture of all the different professions within the museum. (The podcast “Dusted!” is only available in German)
