During my internships, I have had the opportunity to look at the music industry in its most diverse branches over the past two years, a period marked by Covid.
I am involved in the music industry as a musician as well as a supporting professional, moving on from my childhood passion and working for a publishing and management company for three years, where I have been exposed to a variety of tasks from concert management to digital content production. I have also had the opportunity to work on the management of my own band, music journalism and video content production. In order to expand my perspective, this summer I am working on a two-day festival in cooperation with MOME and the Hungarian House of Music, which will give me a better insight into the organisational side of the music industry.
In my thesis, I seek to answer the question of how digitisation can help European museums' efforts to decolonise. In my work, I analyse the literature to understand decolonisation as a museum concept and examine its existing practices through a concrete example. In addition to this analysis, I use in-depth interviews to outline future possibilities for the topic.
