Ruperto Carola RingvorlesungLiving Heritage in the Museum – Rethinking Collections, Exhibitions and Community Engagement
10. Mai 2023
Drawing on critical debates about the role of museums and community-based organisations in safeguarding intangible heritage, the lecture considers the implications of safeguarding living culture from a museological perspective. To this end, it presents relevant examples of case studies from Europe and around the world, in order to embed the conceptual framework of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Heritage, which is based on the active participation of heritage communities, in the main areas of museum practice, notably collections, exhibitions and public engagement.
