Arturo Rodriguez Morato and Dominique Poulot – CulturalBase, Social Platform on Cultural Heritage and European Identities, Project Presentation
CulturalBase (culturalbase.eu), Social Platform on Cultural Heritage and European Identities, is a project created in the framework of the Horizon 2020 of the European Commission, in the collaboration among six European Universities (University of Barcelona, University of Glasgow, Central European University, European University Institute, University of Sussex, Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University) and Interarts organization. By approaching different questions within three thematic axes – cultural inclusion, creativity and memory in Europe, the project aims to join the academic and professional perspective and to produce the recommendations for the research program regarding these questions.
Tomislav Šola – The Mind of our Own
30 years ago, at a ICOFOM conference in Paris I have proposed that we abandon museology and establish heritology. (It evolved later into mnemosophy as a public memory science). The matter was the content and use of theory, not the name. But, to be accepted, innovation must not be too radical (it was!) and arrive from an expected, credible source (it didn’t!). If urged to change entire mindset, museum community may reject the proponent (it did!). However, latter widening of museum concept and new co-operations made things evolve. But, the retrograde, neo-liberal context is obstructive to forming a new profession out of dismembered heritage sector: it may propose an usable future. (www.mnemosophy.com)
Irina Subotić, professor emeritus – Running all over the Balkans…
The presentation will tackle the variety of my civil activities connected to the education, raising awareness on the cultural heritage importance and its protection. These activities are in the same time on the agenda of the reconciliation, maintaining the old friendships and establishing new links after the dramatic 1990s in the former Yugoslavia, which is now called the region of the Balkans.
Nikola Krstović – Heritage and Realities: Curatorial Shaping of the World
The concept is based on the notion “everyone curate – curator creates”. Democratization of heritage methodologies and practices unfolded huge “grey zone” of what heritage might be and blurred traditional understanding of the profession(s). Curating is the collective process, not connected to the one curator’s job description. In that sense, curatorial (re)shaping of the world demands new knowledge and skills and demand reconsideration of professional ethic and rules. New realities open the questions of education, implementation of theories into practices and vice versa and basic constitutive frames. The final aftermath could refer to what we memorize globally and locally and how those memories influence our identities (if that is of any importance) and values, stands and actions now and in the future. The course “Nine Deaths (Lives) of Curator – How to be(come) more relevant” addresses the mentioned concepts demanding from participants to link theories and practices having in mind the right balances between professional codes and freedom of expression.
