Susan Kamel ─ Professorin für Museologie, HTW Berlin
Susan Kamel is a Professor of Museum Studies at the University of Applied Sciences Berlin (HTW Berlin). She conducted research on curating Islamic Art and Cultural Histories in the Arab World and Europe (2006–2014) and also curated numerous exhibitions in which she included communities in the process of exhibition development. These projects have shown that an ›in-reach‹ (a reorganisation of organisational structures), must be considered the first necessary step to increase the accessibility of the institution as a whole. Today, she continues to work on collaborative exhibition development projects to empower communities, most of which are her own.
