Eurovision – Museums exhibiting Europe (EMEE) is a project funded with support from the European Commission to explore an innovative interdisciplinary approach for national and regional museums, aiming at re-interpreting their objects in a broader context of European and transnational history. Museum visitors shall face objects not only on a regionally and nationally determined level of meaning, but discover transnational and European perspectives using new means of presentation, performances and possibilities for participation. At the same time the project develops creative concepts for audience development and studies methods to attract the rather large number of “non-visitors” to the museums.

Two German emigration museums: Bremerhaven and Hamburg

From March 20 to 23, Anna Chiara Cimoli (Politecnico di Milano) visited two important German migration museums: the Deutsches Auswanderer Haus in Bremerhaven and BallinStadt in Hamburg. Both milestones in the –however recent- history of migration museums, the first one in particular considered a possible “model” for its peculiar layout choices and its historical discourse, they raise questions about the recourse to theatre techniques in museums (the “architect as director”), the proposal of the migrant’s journey as a sensible experience, and the universal value of the identification with real biographies.

RF03 case study at Museo Laboratorio della Mente, Rome, Italy

The ongoing RF03 research on networks and collaborations has been further enriched with a case study at the Museo Laboratorio della Mente, visited on 12 March 2012. Based in Rome, Italy, the museum opened in 2000, in the location of the Santa Maria della Pietà hospital complex. The museum provides a journey through the history of mental institutions, a story of hardship and diversity, of the fight against the stigma of mental illness and for the promotion of mental health. The importance of the Museo Laboratorio della Mente is supported at regional, national and international level for its experience, archive, research, public involvement, training, exhibits and expansion of the exhibition space in collaboration with the artist group Studio Azzurro.

Perla Innocenti (University of Glasgow) and Giulia Grechi (University of Naples) visited the museum premises and conducted an in-depth interview with the Musem director Dr Pompeo Martelli (pictured below) in […]

RF03 case study at the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe

The RF03 team moved forward in the ongoing research on networks and collaborations with a case study at the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe (CVCE) on 8-9 March 2012. Based in Luxembourg, the CVCE is an interdisciplinary research and documentation centre dedicated to the European integration process. Its mission is to create, share and valorise knowledge in an innovative digital environment.

Perla Innocenti (University of Glasgow) participated to the ASSETS project final workshop, a Europeana collaborative project described by CVCE in the RF03 online survey. This workshop provided a great overview of the ASSETS project achievements, and Europeana developments. Interesting discussions also focussed on the concept of European culture and European heritage, multimedia and copyright, and engagement with users. Perla then conducted in-depth interviews with Ghislain Sillaume and Cristina Blanco Sio-Lopez in relation to networks, collaboration models, European culture and European integration.
