muzeo[b]log Iako je semestar već u punom tijeku, nedvojbeno ga je obilježio vrlo kasni početak nastave. No također, mnogo toga se promijenilo na Katedri za muzeologiju i upravljanje baštinom. Jedan od značajnijih događaja jest preuzimanje funkcije predstojnika Katedre od strane prof. Žarke Vujić. muzeo[b]log
Anéanti par les Khmers rouges, le Ballet royal du Cambodge, porteur d’une culture millénaire, est ressuscité grâce à la foi de quelques survivantes du génocide et danse aujourd’hui sous la direction de la sœur du roi, la princesse Bopha Devi. "Nous nous sommes revues, comptées et nous avons pleuré". C’était en 1991. Il y a bientôt vingt ans. CULTURE CULTURE
Thinking about exhibits | thoughts on museums, content, design, and why they matter This is the third and final part of a series of posts on issues in museums that I thought warranted a bit of unpacking. In the first post, I looked at “immersion” and at “experience” and “participation” in the second. I wanted to understand more about visitor picture taking in museums and this is the result. There’s a lot of rhetoric expended on condemning or extolling the practice, but not as much trying to get at why people take out the camera and click in a museum. In this super-long post, which I beg your forgiveness for not making shorter or breaking into pieces, I want to explore the positions of the pro and anti visitor photography lobbies, make some observations and then look at the underlying motivations. In the end, I’ll propose that digital souvenirs are just the latest way people in museums memorialize the event, and that the social act of sharing images is an act of affiliation and affection that should be encouraged.

The Uncataloged Museum The Uncataloged Museum As long-time readers of the Uncataloged Museum may know, I have a special interest in Ukraine, starting from my time as a Fulbright Scholar and continued through ongoing visits and projects. Not surprisingly, I've been following the events in Kyiv (more often misspelled in the US press as Kiev, the Russian spelling). Several weeks ago, as protests began I wrote a post where I was so bold as to suggest what museums in the capital might be doing as the protests, now called EuroMaidan (for European integration and held on Maidan, the main square) became more powerful, stronger and expanded out from the idea of integration with Europe.
Poesy-Praxis Poesy-Praxis Google Images January 31st, 2012 Amazing to see how people are taking Google’s image capturing technology and adapting it for their own art. Top, Aaron Hobson’s photo-stitched images taken from remote Google street views are both beautiful and haunting.
Museums Now Special Museum Spaces Janet Petitpas, Senior Associate, London Museums are always looking for ways to increase the impact of learning for our visitors. One way to increase impact and memorability is through special spaces and dramatic environments as we are more likely to remember learning messages when they are tied to an overall memorable experience. Historic surveys have shown that some of the most memorable and influential exhibitions are those that take place in special spaces, such as the walk-through heart at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and the grain chutes at the Minnesota History Center.

Museum Audience Insight Museum Audience Insight Free days. Daily deals. Who can resist? They take away or reduce at least one barrier to visiting museums and (we hope) broaden and diversify our audiences. But are they ultimately beneficial to museums? The thing is . . . we don’t know.

While researching local history, one of my students recently came across an old newspaper article she thought I’d find amusing. Titled “Old Scenes Take Form At Museum,” it was a piece on a new exhibit opening in the state history museum. I do indeed find museum history interesting, so I was eager to see how the exhibit was described, what motivated the museum to put it up, and to compare it with the exhibits in the museum today so that I can get a better sense of how the museum’s exhibition philosophies and priorities have shifted. You can see where this is going, right? The exhibit featured in the newspaper is still up today, and from the description in the article, it appears it hasn’t changed at all. Le Blog Musée-Oh!

Il est là, on l'attendait tant, que l'on ne peut que se réjouir. On a vu et revu l'architecture de Ricciotti, sous tous les plans dans les médias, et c'est évidemment inévitable car le bâtiment, son emplacement, sa force est manifeste. Il n'est pas trop faux de prétendre que le MUCEM sauve l'opération Marseille 2013. C'est le fait marquant qui s'impose. Très beau lieu dans lequel il sera certainement fort agréable de travailler. De ce fait, les expositions sont un peu occultées tant on a envie d'abord de prendre le temps d'apprécier le site.

Cela fait déjà plusieurs semaines que je déserte le blog... Cette absence de publication n'est pas seulement dû à ma charge de travail du moment ou à un manque d'inspiration ! Je tentais d'achever une tâche de longue haleine : compiler enfin mon book sur le papier mais aussi sur le web. Enfin, toutes mes références pro sont en ligne ! Vous pourrez y découvrir tous les projets sur lesquels j'ai travaillé ces dernières années et ceux sur lesquels je planche en ce moment en cliquant […]
