Abstract

Ausstellungen kultur- und naturwissenschaftlicher Thematik gehören heute zu den wichtigsten Äußerungen kulturellen Lebens. Aber was geschieht eigentlich, wenn man ausstellt? Wie »wirklich« ist das Ausgestellte? Das Buch fasst Ausstellungen als »Wirklichkeitsspiele« auf, in denen die Bedeutung der Dinge nicht nur vermittelt, sondern auch neu ausgehandelt werden kann. Der von Alexander Klein gewählte Zugang legt die historischen Wurzeln des Ausstellens frei und untersucht sein spannungsreiches Verhältnis zum Sammeln. Dabei erweist sich, dass das Medium »wissenschaftliche Ausstellung« die Grenzen des konventionellen Museums sprengt. Ein bebilderter Teil mit einer kommentierten Auswahl von Exponaten rundet die Publikation ab.

Abstract

The publication focuses on the – for Europe - radical and influential new installation of the Imperial Picture Gallery in Vienna at the turn of the 19th century, a seminal time of change both for art-history and European civilization. Function, internal structure and presentation of the Imperial Picture Gallery evolved in a way that was to prove exemplary: the princely gallery was transformed into a public art museum, with a new installation at Belvedere Palace that reflected art-historical principles.

Abstract

In 2010, five magnificent Blackfoot shirts, now owned by the University of Oxford’s Pitt Rivers Museum, were brought to Alberta to be exhibited at the Glenbow Museum, in Calgary, and the Galt Museum, in Lethbridge. The shirts had not returned to Blackfoot territory since 1841, when officers of the Hudson’s Bay Company acquired them. The shirts were later transported to England, where they had remained ever since.Exhibiting the shirts at the museums was, however, only one part of the project undertaken by Laura Peers and Alison Brown. Prior to the installation of the exhibits, groups of Blackfoot people—hundreds altogether—participated in special “handling sessions,” in which they were able to touch the shirts and examine them up close. The shirts, some painted with mineral pigments and adorned with porcupine quillwork, others decorated with locks of human and horse hair, took the breath away of those who saw, smelled, and touched them. Long-dormant memories were awakened, and many of the participants described a powerful sense of connection and familiarity with the shirts, which still house the spirit of the ancestors who wore them.In the pages of this beautifully illustrated volume is the story of an effort to build a bridge between museums and source communities, in hopes of establishing stronger, more sustaining relationships between the two and spurring change in prevailing museum policies. Negotiating the tension between a museum’s institutional protocol and Blackfoot cultural protocol was challenging, but the experience described both by the authors and by Blackfoot contributors to the volume was transformative. Museums seek to preserve objects for posterity. This volume demonstrates that the emotional and spiritual power of objects does not vanish with the death of those who created them. For Blackfoot people today, these shirts are a living presence, one that evokes a sense of continuity and inspires pride in Blackfoot cultural heritage.

Abstract

Presentations of war and violence in museums generally oscillate between the fascination of terror and its instruments and the didactic urge to explain violence and, by analysing it, make it easier to handle and prevent. The museums concerned also have to face up to these basic issues about the social and institutional handling of war and violence. Does war really belong in museums? And if it does, what objectives and means are involved? Can museums avoid trivializing and aestheticising war, transforming violence, injury, death and trauma into tourist sights? What images of shock or identification does one generate – and what images would be desirable?

Abstract

This chapter explores the value and relevance of a combined academic and public engagement approach to the history of medicine. The authors consider a specific mental health project at the Bethlem Museum of the Mind, in the context of a longer tradition of service user involvement in mental health research and museology. It is argued that the project’s approach presented a unique opportunity for mental health education and the reduction of stigma. These elements of the project informed the historical focus, resulting in a more inclusive history than in many institutional histories of psychiatry, focusing on the importance of space, place and architecture in twentieth-century psychiatry. The chapter concludes that community engagement within a museum setting enriches the history of medicine as a discipline and vice versa.

Abstract

Im Zuge des historischen und medialen Umbruchs am Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts haben sich Ort, Raum und Architektur der Ausstellung und damit verbunden der Prozess des Ausstellens radikal verändert.

Abstract

Ohne Frage hat Religion Konjunktur. Einerseits gilt Religion als Ressource von Sinn und spiritueller Erfahrung, andererseits ist sie Konfliktpotential. Zunehmend wird Religion auch zum Gegenstand von visuellen und textlichen Repräsentationen in Museen und Ausstellungen. Solche musealen Inszenierungen von Religion/en transportieren jedoch immer ein spezifisches Religionskonzept und beziehen, meist unausgesprochen, Stellung in aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Wertedebatten. Eine religionswissenschaftliche und museologische Reflexion dieses Zusammenhanges ist daher geboten und wird mit dieser Aufsatzsammlung erstmals in systematischer und praxisorientierter Form geleistet. Hierbei werden religionshistorische und sammlungsgeschichtliche Aspekte ebenso berücksichtigt wie aktuelle Ausstellungs- und Museumskonzepte. Für alle, die sich mit Religion und deren Repräsentation im Rahmen von Ausstellungen beschäftigen, bietet der Band damit wichtige Hilfestellungen.

Abstract

Mit dem Einzug der digitalen Medien in das Museum entsteht eine neue Mischung von Realraum und virtuellem Raum. Zugleich tritt unter diesen Bedingungen das eigene mediale Erbe des Museums deutlich hervor. Diese voranschreitende »Automatisierung des Museums«, in der es zunehmend zum Medium der Präsentation gerät, führt dazu, dass das Museum selbst virtualisiert und somit vom Realraum abkoppelbar bzw. zu ihm »hinzufügbar« wird. Der Band stellt zahlreiche internationale Pilotprojekte des Einsatzes digitaler Medien in Museen vor. Dabei wird deutlich, wie sich Museen unter dem Einsatz partizipativer und interaktiver Strategien als Orte der Erinnerung und des sozialen Gedächtnisses in den virtuellen Raum hinein ausweiten.

Abstract

Museums have always been virtual places – so why do these institutions find it so difficult to use digital media? And what does a museum have to offer to a knowledge-based society whose act of remembering increasingly takes place in the digital domain?
