Participation and the Museum

Final Reports


The working group "Time"

This group was dealing with „Time” as a possible topic for the future children’s exhibition in the Världskulturmuseet. As we were a lot of members in the group, we first had to figure out how we can divide into smaller groups to provide a productive working progress. The first thing we did was to approach the notion of “time” with a broad brainstorming to find out which aspects of time are interesting to deal with. A lot of things came into our minds before we finally decided to split up into three subgroups which devoted themselves to the three periods of time “Past”, “Present” and “Future” in very different ways. 

„Pieces of Memory“ sketches a project that aims to involve the different communities of Gothenburg and enables them to create and curate their own exhibition in a participatory process. In cooperation with schools, the children collect their families' stories via an object and written texts and get the chance to display them publicly, for example in the glass cases on the Avenyn in the city centre. Encouraging a dialogue between the children and their parents and grandparents, the project raises questions about the families' identities and connects stories from families with different cultural backgrounds. A digital version of the object and its story will finally be fed into an online archive and thus be connected to the potential Time-Exhibition at Världskulturmuseet. 

This group was inspired by the principles of LARPING (live action role-playing) to create a participatory exhibition scene where the visitor is involved in generating the exhibition’s content. The creation of such an open an experimental space encourages the visitor to contribute to the collaborative creation of a story by interacting with the shown objects and other visitors. Every participant can have a different interpretation of an object and therefore also a very personal reading of the whole exhibition. So the experience people make while visiting the exhibition is always depending on the other “players” which finally means that the “game” can always be repeated, the visitors can acquire different knowledge whenever they come back. This possibility of repetition also constitutes a significant advantage for a permanent exhibition. Click here for further information!

Talking about the identity crisis of the museum, being a normal state of mind, inspired us to use this topic as a basic idea of our subgroup work. The question of identity is mostly connected to the future. We think that not knowing how to deal with certain problems somehow connects the museum and its visitors. This is why we created two small video drafts for a provoking campaign that shall generate participation where it happens today: in the social media. The videos show dystopic settings of participation in the Världskulturmuseet of the Future and deal with two problems that were discussed with the museum:
How can we bring back the objects?
How do we bring in visitors?
Dealing with its weaknesses or uncertainties via this campaign, the museum would at the same time confront the visitors with its own questions:
How do they want to participate? How far would the museum like to open its doors?

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and
    everything. However just imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your
    posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the best in its
    field. Fantastic blog!

    Foor instance,from those articles you'll never know that an average printer working continuously for an hour exhausts about 10 time less benzene than one smoked cigarette.
    The particular brother printer toner tubes are broadly used
    due to its huge possibility for cost savings while creating excellent copies of files.
    Both toner cartridge and toner have their life span which iss often limited to number of prints for example
    life span of any toner can be 200 copies while life span off any toner
    cartridge caan be 2000 copies.

    Use something like Tweet - Deck because that updates
    Twitter in real time and enables you to reply comment etc while not having to
    refresh your browser. As suggested above you'll be able to construct your authority
    in a very more tactful manner by casually sharing some
    good information and leaving a web link so others can investigate
    further whenever they choose. I do not think the founding of Google is
    essentially the most interesting story.

    Even though this is not a herpes type 2 cure, it has a way of getting to the
    root of the problem so that the virus is essentially damaged.
