We asked Amsterdam Museum curators Annemarie de Wildt and Errol Boon to reflect on the making of the virtual crowd-curated Corona in the City exhibition. The exhibit invited the public to participate in the live documentation of everyday life during the pandemic. To allow documentation of current events, curatorial authority was shared with the public. Although they see advantages in the new forms and modes of communication that the museum discovered and experimented with during the crisis, they both look forward to working with people physically in the future. They argue that while the new museum has been perhaps more responsive, the digital needs to be paired with a physical space where people meet. Our conversation has been edited for length and clarity. —THE EDITORS
