The constitution of a Site Museum in Tyre-Al Bass and of a second museographic
exhibition area in the cryptoporticus of Blbeck-Al Qal, together with adequate visiting paths and explanatory panels will enable the suitable presentation and valorization of these tremendous assets of the Lebanese Cultural Patrimony.
Enables and advises on the technical aspects and practices of the Museographic
logic of the community museums in the United States, as well as their permanent collections, put in the narrative's centre the ancient history of their countries and continents of belonging.
And while I concur with many of the valid and interesting points that Plantzos raises in his article, I contend that the exhibition logic of the new museum, its architectural and museographic
bodily affordances, cannot be understood in isolation, cannot be critiqued and deconstructed effectively, if not linked with contemporary global museum claims to the material past, and if all the other voices, interventions and provocations, beyond the official, are not taken into account.
To the attentive observer willing to comply with the demands of this oddly museographic
display, certain words and passages jump out from the pages as part of an inherently subjective process of identifying details and relationships of particular interest: Michel Foucault's notion of "effective history" or Francis Fukuyama's postmodernist proclamation of the "end of history"; David Graeber's discussion of art's revolutionary potential as "non-alienated production" or the idea of Langeweile, boredom, illustrated by Martin Heidegger as "waiting on a deserted platform for a train" or "going to a dinner party.
From a museographic
point of view, it is also worth noting some details of the Art Institute's installation.
Wine production in France has benefited from the combination of regionalism and economic modernization by a carefully orchestrated marketing strategy built on the iconic, museographic
and folkloric figure of the vigneron as the paragon of quality and of terroir, accompanied by hierarchization of French landscapes and regions illustrating the inherent qualities of a 'terroir beni des Dieux' (terroir blessed by God).
Objective : The Project intends to contribute to updating the museological strategy and at designing and executing a museographic
display for the basement of the National Museum of Beirut in order to ensure a suitable presentation of the collection of funerary art that will be exhibited therein.
I therefore express my gratitude to the Minister of Culture, Mr Areiji, and to the Directorate General of Antiquities for the precious partnership that we will experience once more within the Project for the museographic
display of the National Museum of Beirut, confident that this cooperation project may be soon considered another successful story for the cultural patrimony of this Country.
project was centered on bringing out the historical aspect of the diasporic migrations and their geographical and cultural origins, but it stressed in particular the processes of construction of new identities in the destination cities and the agency and empowerment of these women through their management a diverse array of associations.
Although no such philosophical aspirations are forthcoming in Paris, where sheer visual pleasure dominates, 'L'homme pare' equally asks serious questions and proposes new solutions, both in museographic
and academic terms.
