Reflecting by Doing
Workshop in cooperation with Institute for Art in Context, University of the Arts, Berlin (D) and the Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo (BiH)
Instead of discussing theoretical issues, this workshop aims at learning and reflecting by doing: goal of the workshop is to set up a small however substantial exhibition on the collections of the Historical Museum of B & H within two days. In order to achieve this goal, 30 objects will be chosen from the different collections of the Museum; these objects have to match two conditions: to portrait a specific aspect of the museum's holdings and, by this, of the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and, furthermore, to associate with one specific letter of the Bosnian alphabet. The result will be the core of an 'encyclopedia' on the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina as far it is represented by the collections of the Historical Museum - an exhibition that can be extended as well as refined in the future.
The Historical Museum of Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina was founded in 1945 as the Museum of National Liberation, in 1949 re-named Museum of National Revolution of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and in 1993 given its current name and mission by law. Housed in an interesting modernist building, erected 1963 especially for its purposes, the museum holds vast collections on the Medieval, Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian and pre-World War II periods.
The workshop is open for curators only and will be conducted by Michael Fehr, Berlin, and Bettina Habsburg-Lothringen, Graz, supported by Asja Mandic, Sarajevo.
