Abstract

The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology first opened its doors in 1915, and since then has attracted visitors from all over the world as well as providing valuable teaching resources. Named after its founder, the pioneering archaeologist Flinders Petrie, the Museum holds more than 80,000 objects and is one of the largest and finest collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology in the world. Richly illustrated and engagingly written, the book moves back and forth between recent history and the ancient past, between objects and people. Experts discuss the discovery, history and care of key objects in the collections such as the Koptos lions and Roman era panel portraits. The rich and varied history of the Petrie Museum is revealed by the secrets that sit on its shelves.

Abstract

Today, museums use various media to convey and communicate content. The spectrum ranges from print media to multimedia productions, hands-on and media stations to interactive, software and web-based offers. These change the "learning location museum" and expand it into digital space. This volume documents current concepts and technologies. It illuminates important instruments such as websites, online collections, social media, media stations, multimedia guides and essential topics such as e-learning, e-publishing, storytelling or digital strategies. In addition, concrete tips and recommendations for action regarding the conception, production and operation of media in the museum are given. An e-book and a digital toolkit with constantly updated material as well as media and application examples complete the publication.

Abstract

Mit dem vorliegenden Band wollen die Herausgeber der in Deutschland nur zögerlich in Gang kommenden Diskussion um Methoden und Strategien der Besucherbindung im Museum neue Impulse geben. Hierdurch soll das in vielen Museen im deutschsprachigen Raum bislang noch unausgeschöpfte Potential für Besucherintegration und Besucherbindung erschlossen werden. Wie die vorgelegte Publikation dokumentiert, gibt es sowohl in den Museen als auch in der Wirtschaft vielfältige, zum Teil langjährige Praxiserfahrung zu dem Thema Besucher- bzw. Kundenbindung. Für die Leser des Bandes wird der gut gefüllte und praktisch erprobte »Instrumentenkasten«, den die moderne Betriebswirtschaftslehre zu dem Problem der Kundenbindung bereitstellt, geöffnet und die Lösungen mit Bezugnahme auf Museen und andere Kulturinstitutionen vorgestellt.

Abstract

Europe’s national museums have since their creation been at the centre of on-going nation making processes. National museums negotiate conflicts and contradictions and entrain the community sufficiently to obtain the support of scientists and art connoisseurs, citizens and taxpayers, policy makers, domestic and foreign visitors alike. National Museums and Nation-building in Europe 1750-2010 assess the national museum as a manifestation of cultural and political desires, rather than that a straightforward representation of the historical facts of a nation. National Museums and Nation-building in Europe 1750-2010 examines the degree to which national museums have created models and representations of nations, their past, present and future, and proceeds to assess the consequences of such attempts. Revealing how different types of nations and states – former empires, monarchies, republics, pre-modern, modern or post-imperial entities – deploy and prioritise different types of museums (based on art, archaeology, culture and ethnography) in their making, this book constitutes the first comprehensive and comparative perspective on national museums in Europe and their intricate relationship to the making of nations and states.

Abstract

Museum Object Lessons for the Digital Age explores the nature of digital objects in museums, asking us to question our assumptions about the material, social and political foundations of digital practices. Through four wide-ranging chapters, each focused on a single object – a box, pen, effigy and cloak – this short, accessible book explores the legacies of earlier museum practices of collection, older forms of media (from dioramas to photography), and theories of how knowledge is produced in museums on a wide range of digital projects. Swooping from Ethnographic to Decorative Arts Collections, from the Google Art Project to bespoke digital experiments, Haidy Geismar explores the object lessons contained in digital form and asks what they can tell us about both the past and the future. Drawing on the author’s extensive experience working with collections across the world, Geismar argues for an understanding of digital media as material, rather than immaterial, and advocates for a more nuanced, ethnographic and historicised view of museum digitisation projects than those usually adopted in the celebratory accounts of new media in museums. By locating the digital as part of a longer history of material engagements, transformations and processes of translation, this book broadens our understanding of the reality effects that digital technologies create, and of how digital media can be mobilised in different parts of the world to very different effects.

Abstract

Museums especially in the Anglosaxon world understand that they have to present themselves in a modern form if they want to be accepted by a younger audience. Internet, social media, virtual and augmented reality, open culture: these are keywords which receive an ever increasing importance in the museum context as well. The book presents a selection of art museums which approach the digital sphere in a creative manner. In this way they try to cope with both their mission to educate and to entertain.

Abstract

Museumsfachleute beobachten die zunehmende Bedeutung von publikumsorientierten Ausstellungen kritisch. Sie befürchten, dass der Bildungsauftrag zu Gunsten von Oberflächenreizen aufgegeben wird. Die Studie blickt einerseits kritisch-diagnostisch auf die gegenwärtige Ausstellungskultur. Besucherorientierte Konzepte mit narrativen, künstlerischen sowie partizipativen Ansätzen werden vorgestellt und diskutiert. Darüber hinaus thematisiert das Buch mit einer praktisch-produktiven Intention kommunikative Dimensionen musealer Präsentationen. Eine exemplarische Ausstellungsanalyse konkretisiert die theoretischen Überlegungen in der Praxis.

Abstract

The recent exhibitions dedicated to Botticelli around the world show, more than ever, the significant and continued debate about the artist. Botticelli Past and Present engages with this debate. The book comprises four thematic parts, spanning four centuries of Botticelli’s artistic fame and reception from the fifteenth century. Each part comprises a number of essays and includes a short introduction which positions them within the wider scholarly literature on Botticelli. The parts are organised chronologically beginning with discussion of the artist and his working practice in his own time, moving onto the progressive rediscovery of his work from the late eighteenth to the turn of the twentieth century, through to his enduring impact on contemporary art and design. Expertly written by researchers and eminent art historians and richly illustrated throughout, the broad range of essays in this book make a valuable contribution to Botticelli studies.

Abstract

1793. En pleine Terreur, la Convention nationale crée le Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle. Le décret du 10 juin confie, à ce qui fut le Jardin du roi, la tâche d’enseigner les sciences naturelles au peuple. Le présent ouvrage retrace les grandes étapes du développement du Muséum en tant qu’Institution, en tant qu’organisme de recherches et en tant que modèle pour l’Europe et le monde. Sur un siècle d’histoire, défilent les difficultés de sa construction administrative dans un contexte politique mouvementé, l’organisation et le développement du travail scientifique de ses savants, la participation de l’établissement aux grandes missions de découvertes comme aux débats scientifiques qui agitent le monde de cette époque. Un siècle, trois générations c’est beaucoup et c’est peu, de la période cruciale de sa fondation, à l’« âge d’or » jusqu’en 1850, jusqu’à la période incertaine précédant la 1ère Guerre mondiale. Ce livre, qui se présente sous forme de contributions d’éminents spécialistes d’histoire des sciences, aborde dans une langue claire et accessible l’histoire des idées et l’histoire d’une institution prestigieuse. À cet égard, son public est aussi vaste que celui qui fréquente le Muséum : chercheurs du monde entier, connaisseurs du patrimoine, amoureux du Jardin des Plantes.
