Public life

The MuCEM’s collections show how cultural, political, religious, social and linguistic identities are built in modern and contemporary times (from the 16th century to the present day). The public space, where the history of the world and world-views play out, is the stage for revolutions, protest movements, debates on secularity and more: all those points that shape the contemporary identities of civil societies in Europe and the Mediterranean.
