C&R 2017: READING MUSEOLOGY
The Contexts & Representations programme (C&R), as a form of introduction to the work on creating the current exhibition: Nyimpa kor ndzidzi/ One Man, no Chop. The (Re)conceptualisation of the Museum of African Art – the Veda and Zdravko Pečar Collection, continues in October.
On this occasion, the program will host Koštana Banović. Her short film Reading Museology in a formal sense uses footage filmed during the winter of 2016/17 in different spaces of the MAA. By filming the exhibits on the permanent display, the unfinished Dome used for storing different museum equipment, finally the space of the storage space for museum collections, Koštana Banović focuses the same gaze on both objects and spaces which, in the museum’s quotidian, are essentially different.
The programme will consist of the Reading Museology screening (13 min.) followed by commentary and open discussion around the topics of “reading” museology within the framework of different artistic and curatorial practices.
