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.

One of the initiatives organised by EMEE […]

MeLa Research Field 01: Final Brochure Released

 

The RF01 Final Brochure, presenting the activities developed within the MeLa Research Field 01, is now available on the MeLa website.

The objective of the first MeLa research field is to explore the importance of place in European museums for the construction of identities. Researchers analysed key displays in museums that focus on historical and contemporary issues around place, identity and belonging with specific reference to the migration and movement of people. Additionally, researchers interviewed staff and visitors in order to understand how and why museums develop such displays and how visitors, including those with migrant backgrounds, respond to them. Migration has inevitable connections with some of the most pressing issues in European societies, such as the mobility of people, multiculturalism, diversity, equality of opportunity and social cohesion or division. Museums have the potential to play an important role in exploring these issues, and some do […]
