Documenting Museomix was “a great experience, exhausting for the students, but absolutely valuable,” said Webster Geneva photography program head Francesco Arese Visconti.

Webster University Geneva students in the Photography Program and the Media Department recently had a unique opportunity to play a part in expanding how museums and the community interact.

Students documented the three-day event, with their photos and videos featuring on Museomix social networks, blogs and websites.

The students in School of Communications programs spent three days documenting Museomix for its first event in Switzerland. Museomix encourages visitors to see museums and their collections in a new light by enabling participants with wide-ranging passions and professions to collaborate.

Over three days, Museomix opens a museum to professionals with an array of skills. The museums become playgrounds to experiment and prototype new ways of mediating content and culture, enabling new relations between cultural institutions and their users.

Museomix 2014 took place Nov. 7-9 in the heart of the Musée d’art et d’histoire de Genève, which the Webster Geneva students documented through photos and short video clips. All the material produced has been used for Museomix social networks, blogs and websites.

The students involved include Anna Arutsiunian, Anna Martynova, Naz Doganci, Carolina Bianchi, Jumanah Abualkhair, Kevin Vachet and Paola Henao.

Each student displayed professionalism, flexibility and enthusiasm throughout the event, said Francesco Arese Visconti, head of the Photography Program and coordinator of the Webster University Geneva Museomix team. ”It has been a great experience, exhausting for the students, but absolutely valuable. Our Webster University Geneva team had the chance to work in collaboration with professionals of the Media field and in contact with creative people in a very energetic and stimulating environment.”
