Museum content can be generated by a visitor group. We describe how and share some significant difficulties encountered when implementing such bold social curating projects. For example, “Erik ist sauer!” is the informal title of a long-term project between 14 public school students and the Wien Museum. The students are loosely engaged as museum consultants for four years. More interestingly, some of their families have recently immigrated to Vienna and they may have special educational needs. In March 2010, the students made their first exhibition. In this article we show and tell how the process has been accompanied by museum professionals.
