We updated our website – from now on you will find even more, interesting content and inspirations in our newly introduced blog – mo.lt/tinklarastis. It includes interviews, talks, articles, quizzes, video events and meetings, the MO collection, virtual tours and the MO Museum podcast.
After seeing how many interesting meetings and conversations take place at MO Museum, we want all of this to reach as many people as possible so that everyone who wants can participate.
“After seeing how many interesting meetings and conversations take place at MO Museum, we want all of this to reach as many people as possible, so that everyone who wants can participate. Digital accessibility of content is even more relevant in the context of a pandemic. Also, the habits of each person are very different depending on when and how they want to get good content: some choose to read articles, others prefer a video format, still, others want to listen to podcasts or learn more in a playful way. We also thought about the fact that we often have time to listen to a good conversation while travelling or on vacation. In response to these needs, we offer visitors content in various formats, which are now available on the mo.lt blog”, says Milda Ivanauskienė, Director of MO Museum.
The MO blog will feature interviews, articles, conversations, meeting recordings, video tours, quizzes about MO Museum exhibitions, culture and leisure, virtual exhibition tours, the entire digitized MO collection, and even a podcast.
We also present a podcast
From October, we also present a podcast. It will feature conversations with artists, creators taking place in their workshops or at MO Museum, poetry readings, exhibition opening talks and other inspirations.
In the future plans excerpts from the project “Cultural History” and excerpts from the major exhibitions books of MO Museum will be recorded. Live podcasts are also planned for the future.
Quizzes can be found on the new MO blog – another way to get to know MO Museum exhibitions and talk about art, culture and leisure.
Get to know the art in the form of games
With the launch of the first virtual art games in June, the MOlympics, we continue to talk about art in a playful and engaging way. Quizzes can be found on the new MO blog – another way to get to know MO Museum exhibitions and talk about art, culture and leisure.
Currently, visitors are presented with 3 quizzes that complement the main exhibition “Why Is It Hard to Love?”. They are designed for both young and older visitors. We also invite you to try out a quiz on architecture. Quizzes will be filled with other leisure topics, which in one form or another are reflected in the works of Lithuanian artists and authors of the MO collection. These topics include cinema, sports, cities, nature, fashion and more.
Even more video content
First video interviews with the artists of the MO collection were created by the founder of MO Museum Viktoras Butkus. So, we continue this tradition and seek to document as many events, meetings and conversations as possible in the museum.
Thus, if it is not possible to participate in any MO museum event, we promise to document the opening talks MOrathons of the main exhibitions, poetry readings, continue to create videos and other video material presenting Lithuanian modern and contemporary artists.
We create inspiring and engaging content for people and with people.
Communities help create content
Together with the renewed virtual content platform (mo.lt), we invite all those who support the content created by MO to join the MO creators and supporters – the patron community.
“We create inspiring and engaging content for people and with people. Therefore, the community of all MO supporters is very important. We want to continue creating relevant content, to which we believe the patrons of MO Museum will also contribute”, says the director of MO Museum.
Art closer to the people
The MO collection was in a digitizing process from the beginning. This is the way we try to remove any barriers to artistic cognition. The constantly updated and digitized collection is complemented by virtual exhibition tours, which are available free of charge on the museum’s website. And the experience of visitors visiting virtual exhibitions is extended by e. guides and comprehensive audio stories about artists and their works created by MO Museum team.
“The digitization of the collection and virtual tours allow you to experience and get to know MO Museum and the exhibitions exhibited in it, no matter where you are. This opens up even greater opportunities for us to have a dialogue and discuss more widely, despite the distances”, adds M. Ivanauskienė.
For wider cultural knowledge and discovery, MO Museum has developed and digitized the “Cultural History” project, which presents art, photography, film, literature, theatre, dance, design, music and other arts in detail.
