Curating History Workshop
What happens when curators and scholars are brought together in museums
EUROPEAN UNIVERSITY INSTITUTE | FLORENCE | 11th - 13th OCTOBER 2017
Museums display objects constructed in historical complexity which cannot be explained by one single narrative. This complexity constitutes an obstacle for museum actors, who are assigned the task of providing an interpretation that can never embrace the entirety of the narratives contained in one object. Additionally, this difficulty expands when objects have to be placed in the narrative of permanent exhibitions, which present certain specific constraints.
