  • CLÉMENTINE DELISS: THE POST–ETHNOGRAPHIC MUSEUM

    • Sep 2014
    • Venues: Monash University Art Museum (MUMA) and University of Sydney

    The Power Institute invites you to the 2014 University Art Museums Australia Lecture by lecture by Dr Clémentine Deliss, Director, Welkulturen Museum in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

     

    In 2014, an ethnographic museum appears to be out of time, its collections unable to combine with current concepts of post-colonial contemporaneity. Dr Deliss's talk will ask, is it possible for the artefacts in an ethnographic museum to act as a reservoir from which to constitute new methodologies of experimental research into visual and material culture? How does one build a new collection around one from the past that is so vehemently contested?

     

    The Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt attempts to remediate, in other words, to address the deficient situation around our collections by activating a working methodology of production, which includes multiples interlocutors, different media and a plurality of idioms of interpretation. Guest artists and scholars are invited to live and work on site. Their engagement and interaction with ethnographic artefacts in the museum’s laboratory leads to the production of new prototypes. Through the incompleteness of form and content, the prototype is able to carry over new meanings around given objects of heritage: it constitutes a narratological vehicle that goes beyond conventional displays and explanatory wall texts of an exhibition. The result of this dialogical and recursive work of assembling and remediating provides the basis for a new understanding of the research collection and ultimately, the foundation of a future “Museum-University”.
