Description

How is museum history told? This is the initial question of the lecture, which is considered as an experiment and thinking lab on how historiographies of the institution can be shaped in order to arrive at authentic narratives. And does authenticity in this case mean linearity? The lecture is a journey through times, geographies and languages that breaks new ground in terms of a phenomenology of the museum and the understanding of museums. The aim is to get to the bottom of how the narrative of the museum has been established, and whether the whole picture is really revealed in the writing of history. More to the point, what influences are/were marginalized and omitted from the narrative, and by what means. Ur and Alexandria, two legendary places of the past, are the two emblematic poles from where the horizon of the lecture opens up.
