KHI conference Whose heritage Title

 

International Conference and World Café, March, 12th 2016, 9.00 – 18.30
hosted and organized by Anne-Marie Bonnet and FLOORPLAN
Bonn University, Department of Art History

 

The categories and modes of thinking with which we approach our own cultural cartography and the semantics of our knowledge were mostly conceived in the 19th century and it is high time for a revision not only of our approach to “other” cultures but also our own. We therefore raise the question:

Whose heritage are we dealing with?

With this one-day conference, we want to create an overview of the contemporary discussions on museums dealing with old and new formats of heritage. The morning session has been set up as an informal “World Café”. In this interactive format, the guests are invited to address pertinent topics such as transnationality, transculturality, shared heritage, intellectual property, “Deutungshoheit”, restitution, museological concepts & categorisations and the management of meaning in art and culture.

In the afternoon, the conference will bring together honourable guests from the academic and practical museum-fields. The podium is not only dedicated to aspects of how to deal with/handle/encounter so called “other” cultures but also in addressing questions of our own cultural and intellectual heritage. We would like to encourage the audience to participate in the debate.

 

New: Videos of all speeches and discussions are now available on the FLOORPLAN YOUTUBE channel. Please find a link to the WDR's detailed report about the conference including an interview with Kristina Engels HERE (in German).

FLOORPLAN is a museum research group and think tank of art historians, ethnographers, anthropologists, law experts, artists and designers. Within this network of specialization, we develop trans-disciplinary models of interpretation, discussion and presentation of museum collections and topics. Our main goal is to foster exchange between academia and museums, between theory and practice through workshops and conferences with external experts.
