La ce bun o expozitie?

De pe H-Museum... o conferinta la care mi-ar fi placut sa pot merge. E organizata de Max Planck Research Network History of Scientific Objects si Deutsches Museum. Are loc la Munchen, 27/28 November, 2008
Organizatorii sunt Helmuth Trischler, Christian Sichau, Susanne
Pickert; Deutsches Museum.
Sa vedem ce spun ei:  No exhibition without scholarship: Object based studies and the exploration of the cultural context of the object are prerequisites for the intelligible
showing. However, exhibitions do more than merely visualize the results of
research. They have the potential of stimulating scholarship and generating
knowledge by posing new research questions.

How can researchers take advantage of this opportunity? In which way can
scholarly arguments be translated into spatial arrangement and at the same
time kept serviceable for reading and citing by later recipients? What might
the results of the scholarly examination of an exhibition look like?
Unlike for printed texts, the traditional publication media of scholarship,
common standards of terminology and argumentation for exhibitions have yet
to emerge. What exactly is the role of the objects on display? Recent
history of science and technology has intensively interrogated the epistemic
quality of these material sources of research.
Yet how do the objects unfold their properties in being staged for
exhibition purposes?The conference will bring together exhibition makers, museum experts, designers, artists, experts in cultural studies and historians of science and technology to engage in a discussion about their experiences and expectations regarding the exhibition as product and generator of scholarship.
Conference talks will be given in English. If you would like to attend,
please send a short e-mail to Susanne Pickert,

Anul acesta, MGB îl ajută pe Moş Crăciun, reunind la un loc 20 de designeri şi artişti din domeniu handcraft pentru a vă asigura un Crăciun plin de cadouri.
Ţinuta obligatorie a acestei ediţii este mohairul – plăcut la atingere şi călduros, mohairul ne trimite imediat cu gândul la un foc mocnit în şemineu şi o încăpere învăluită în miros de scorţişoară, exact atmosfera pe care vrem să o recreăm la această ediţie.
