The next colloquium of the HZK will take place on 08 November 2021 at 2 pm and all interested parties are cordially invited! The event will be held virtually. Access data for the video conference will be provided on request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
From now on, the colloquium is a joint event of the Helmholtz Zentrum für Kulturtechnik (HZK) and the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage (CARMAH).
Sarah Wagner will present her dissertation, recently submitted to the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in which she examined the Kunst- und Wunderkammer in museum exhibition practice. The starting point was the boom of such exhibitions around the year 2000, which gave rise to the question of why cabinets of art and curiosities are resurgent in such large numbers, in what way they differ from one another and ultimately what still connects these exhibitions to the historical type of collection.
