Museums have evolved from from primarily conserving our cultural history and their collections of objects, to utilize their collections to educate society. In later years, this obligation to educate the world has further evolved from museums as mirrors of the world towards a new role as agents providing specific foci. Creating museum exhibitions is thus changing from curated collections as a representation of the world towards a research process in and of itself providing a specific perspective on the world.As part of the citizen science project 'Giving Youth a Voice', we wanted to co-create a cross-media museum exhibition with young individuals about data sharing and the body as data in relation to public mental health. However, the goal of the process was dual: to co-create an exhibition and to do so while subjecting the process to research.
