Custodian Interventions on the Permanent Exhibition of the Museum – LIVE
From September 30 to October 2, the Museum of Yugoslavia’s audience will be able to see the marking of 75 years since the end of the Second World War in a permanent exhibition. Through the selection of items from the museum fund, the curators will focus on that turning point in world and Yugoslav history. With the mentioned program, the Museum of Yugoslavia joins this year’s manifestation of European Heritage Days with the theme Heritage and Education – Knowledge for the Future.
The museum objects will emphasize some of the specific historical moments, but also different ways of remembering the war, as well as the symbols and values of the then society and the ruling ideology.
“In the mentioned period, following the flexible way of working on the exhibition, the audience can find curators solving conceptual and practical dilemmas in front of open showcases, choosing exhibits, setting up and fitting texts. Drawing attention to the challenges and limitations of interpretation, but also to the necessity and benefit of including different perspectives, we invite visitors to comment, ask questions and intervene on the spot where they think they should,” the Museum staff explains adding,
“The current exhibition, the Museum Laboratory, starts from the collections and the museum object as the main source through which we explore the social circumstances, phenomena, achievements and moments important for understanding the Yugoslav experience. The main motive for this exhibition is the turbulent history of the Museum of Yugoslavia, but also the re-examination of the concept of heritage in general. In addition to the Museum’s curators, other experts and the public are involved in the research as well.”
The working hours of the Museum are from Wednesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 6 pm, and during the visit it is necessary to wear a protective mask, as well as to undergo a non-contact temperature measurement and hand disinfection upon entry.
