  • Epidemic objects in museums. Cholera, storytelling and ecological

    • Authors: Nathalia Brichet, Frida Hastrup
      Pages: 5 - 5
      Abstract: The Covid19 pandemic has made it painfully clear that global interconnectedness may explode in virulent contagion. Against this background, the article looks to another disease outbreak and engages an object from a historical cholera epidemic, namely a nineteenth century sealed flask containing gut secretion from a Nordic cholera patient. The so-called cholera bottle, now held in Copenhagen Medical Museion, works as an “epidemic object”, implying that its contents may spread along uncontrollable paths, producing and transforming nation states, medical frontiers, hotspots and havens along the way. Through open-ended fieldwork around the cholera bottle, pursuing unforeseen relations between then and now, here and there, and cholera and wider ecologies, the article suggests that such epidemic objects force us to pay acute attention to the choices that underpin museums’ storytelling. As such, the cholera bottle can point to highly problematic structures of global transmission – of scientific knowledge, virus, and health resources in an era of ecological disturbance – which is vital for museums for them to respond adequately to the pandemic.

  • Trapped. Museum experiments with relationality, empathetic imagination and

    • Authors: Geoffrey Gowlland
      Pages: 20 - 20
      Abstract: This article presents a reflection on a particular category of objects often found in ethnographic museum collections: traps. It asks what might be particular to this kind of object, and what these particularities might teach us about making exhibitions, whether specifically about traps or not. I argue that traps can teach us about particular ways of engaging with objects that mobilise what I call “empathetic imagination”. In the conclusion, I reflect on how exhibitions can use artefacts in ways reminiscent of traps to facilitate such engagement.

  • From removal box to showcase – the archive as principle of

    • Authors: Johanne Løgstrup
      Pages: 34 - 34
      Abstract: This article is a critical reading of the retrospective exhibition with the Danish-French artist Sonja Ferlov Mancoba (1911-1984) at The National Gallery of Denmark in 2019. The article focuses on the various principles of arrangement that the exhibition uses in its curatorial approaches, such as the archive and the studio. This brings forward specific concerns about the artist, the biography and the working process, which relates to broader perspectives on how to reread female artists in a contemporary condition. The article discusses how the exhibition fails to combine the different arrangement principles, and as a result of this, the exhibition rather tells the relation between the works, the artistic process and the influence on the artist rather than shows it. This happens despite a rich archive that shows Ferlov Mancobas concern about her environment and how the time affected her work. The article draws on theories of the archive and feminism.

  • Communities of disagreement in the museums

    • Authors: Anders Bettum
      Pages: 53 - 53
      Abstract: The efforts for diversity and inclusion in museums during the last decades have revealed a need for knowledge and competence on how to handle disagreement and opposition. This paper shows how Lars Laird Iversen’s term communities of disagreement can be applied in museums, and examines his claim that disagreement, under given circumstances, can have a unifying effect. The study is based on discussions from a project where a network of eleven Norwegian museums participated, and on the author’s own attempts to implement communities of disagreement at his own workplace. Iversen’s model has proved useful but requires conscious adaptions that correspond to the complexity of the interface between the museum and the audience.

  • ”What happens if a whale devours you'”. Pupils’ knowledge-making
           in the Whaling Museum

    • Authors: Lise Camilla Ruud
      Pages: 68 - 68
      Abstract: Each fall, seventh-graders and teachers from the Norwegian region Vestfold in south-eastern Norway are invited to the Whaling Museum for a guided tour with museum educators. In the article, approaches from actor-network theory are used to analyze learning strategies among students and how knowledge emerges in the cooperation between students, museum educators, objects and museum surroundings. Knowledge is seen as a relational and ongoing process where human and non-human actors participate and affect one another. The point of departure for the analysis is taken from the students’ explorative behaviour during the visit to the museum.

  • The state of research among Icelandic museums

    • Authors: Ólöf Gerður Sigfúsdóttir
      Pages: 81 - 81
      Abstract: Museums are faced with complex challenges when seeking to fulfil their role as research institutions, whether at the organisational or the conceptual level. These challenges are particularly prominent in the Icelandic museum sector, where research remains obscure, undefined and unregulated. Based on findings from a survey conducted among accredited museums in Iceland, this article illustrates the state of research among Icelandic museums. Inquiring about institutional approach, management and capacity for research, the survey shows how Icelandic museums struggle with scarcity of time, funding and human resources, a picture well known throughout the international museum domain. Furthermore, the article reveals how discrepancies between formal research requirements on the one hand and the lack of criteria on the other create further ramifications for the development of research in Icelandic museums. This, in turn, leaves museums with mixed messages on how to embed research in their agendas and how to account for it.

  • Provenance in nineteenth-century Europe. Research practice and concept

    • Authors: Emma Hagström Molin
      Pages: 96 - 96
      Abstract: Provenance – an object’s history of ownership – is a historically contingent concept and research practice that emerged in nineteenth-century Europe. In a novel project examining the cases of Beda Dudík (Moravia/Austria), Carl Schirren (Livonia/Russia), and Franz Hipler (Warmia/East Prussia) ca. 1850–1900 I argue that, while the art market and nationalism are important, scholars representing regions with a suppressed past and present are key to understanding the relevance of provenance. Due to seventeenth-century plundering, these scholars were dependent on foreign archives and libraries when researching their regions’ history. Their publications describing provenance research are the project’s main sources. The analysis of these publications targets practices such as classification, a crucial tool as determined provenance equaled historical existence. Merging regional inferiority and transnational dependencies, diverse institutional settings, and political, religious, and scholarly ambitions, scrutinizing these cases reveals the needs and encounters that explain the rise of provenance.
