Hello everyone! As you have probably realized, since the Little Mooseum museum savoir-vivre series was completed it has been a bit quiet on the blog, but those who may have assumed that the Museum Assistant is on vacation couldn’t have been more mistaken! Last week I took an intense, 4-day museology course organized by a Barcelona-based association called Arte Sostenible. Simultaneously, I am taking a few online courses via the coursera.org platform — one focused on photography, another one on some ideas from the history of graphic design. I’d like to tell you all about it in a separate post, as I am writing this very one just to announce some exciting news. The Museum Assistant is going to Madrid with an intention to do some serious museum visiting! The key points of my visit to Madrid will be Museo Nacional del Prado, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Reina Sofía, but I would be very happy to squeeze in a couple of other places, as well as to go to the nearby town of Toledo. So, my dear Readers, stay tuned to hear from me during my short stay in Madrid! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter!
