  • The Museum Registrar as ‘Assembled Role’: A Productive
           Conceptualization of Collections Management Practice'

    • Authors: Stuart Bowes
      Pages: 62 - 73
      Abstract: Registrars are an integral part of many contemporary museums, yet theirs is a role that can be difficult to grasp with any certainty. By examining the interconnected functions and duties that constitute registrar practice, this article seeks to determine its scope with greater clarity. To establish the context and rationale for this study, I explore the reasons for the development of competing perceptions surrounding the registrar profession. The article then surveys the definitions of the role present in the published literature to identify the functions most commonly identified with registrar practice. Using the principles of assemblage theory, it fashions a new interpretation of registrar practice from the individual processes that are most widely ascribed to it. The resulting ‘assembled role’ encompasses the fields of resource management, logistics, and risk management. This concept is harnessed to explore the complexities of contemporary registrar practice by considering their role in the acquisition of a born-digital meme. The article concludes by advocating further critical examination of museum registrars and anticipating their continuing importance to the work of museums.

  • Suffering and Survivorship: Mythologies and Contested Narratives of War in
           Serbian Museums

    • Authors: Rebecca Damjanovic, Robert Mason
      Pages: 74 - 86
      Abstract: Museums that commemorate war have a uniquely influential role in determining how the nation approaches its past, and navigate highly politicized issues of loss and victimhood. Far less understood is how curatorial approaches to historical conflicts can influence museum practices regarding more recent wars. In this article, we explore how three museums of national history in Serbia narrate historical wars. Each museum is focused on articulating the story of the nation, albeit with markedly differing emphases in their collecting practices and curatorial strategies. Analysing objects and narrative texts, we suggest that Serbian historical museums engage visitors in ethical questions and topics that are often otherwise silenced. We draw attention to the resurgence of deep historical narratives, emphasizing Serbs’ connection to the environment, faith, and landscape, as a means to assert the continued relevance of historical wars to contemporary national identity. In doing so, museums seek to engage in the fraught politics of memory relating to the Yugoslav Wars.

  • Hacking the Museum: Mandela27 – A Democratic DIY Pop-Up Installation

    • Authors: Jacqueline Anne Cawston, Nomatshayina Mfeketho, David Powell, Dimitar Angelov
      Pages: 87 - 105
      Abstract: In Mandela27 the museum was ‘hacked’ to create a democratic Do-it-Yourself (DIY) pop-up exhibition, inspired by the story of Nelson Mandela’s incarceration. The installation tells the story of the journey from apartheid to democracy and reconciliation in South Africa through a 360 video, archival photographs, a digital game and an interactive timeline – all displayed from within a symbolic reconstruction of Mandela’s cell in Robben Island Prison.The project succeeded in involving a range of diverse audiences, including visitors from under-represented social groups, through its design as a low-cost, pop-up physical/digital installation. It was the design of Mandela27 that allowed it to be made available and freely accessible online across Europe and South Africa, where it has been displayed in multiple ways by local communities. Since 2015, the installation has been exhibited at over 50 venues to over 184,000 people and was still touring in 2023.
