EVEMappingMadridWe combine the emerging end of the title of the blog today with museography, to designate the appearance of something new or set of developments relating to something in particular. Modern museography, that something to which we refer today is what we like to call: teaching, now also emerging museography. The existence of the emerging museology is a reality to today, which is developing thanks to the emergence of a truly simple concepts, but also resulting in conjunction to complex theories. It is difficult to talk about these things so new. We refer to its complexity, not so much by a supposed difficulty of content, but by the way has This new reality to be known publicly. There are no rules, basic formulations are not shown, there are no rules that can be made so that this new phase of museography can understand easily. We can make an effort and generate four ideas which summarized, a little forcefully, this reality new–our duty is clear doubts if it is in our hand, let’s go:

1. the interpretation (contextualization of the museological content) as an instrument of the new Science Museum.

2. any content or object may be under the museographic treatment, including a building or even an entire city (cultural heritage).

3. the new themrodynamics only be justified if they facilitate universal knowledge and enhance the historical memory.

4 behind every exhibit we must see clearly the existence of a human being that, as a transmitter of knowledge, is equipped with history and memory.

Metallurgic-ParkThe contextualization of the exhibitions in the museums is one of the new strategies of distribution of contents that is based on the emerging museographies

Museums are institutions that fight against the absence of a common human memory. The truth is if we delve into the past, to memory, shooing the terrible ghost that is forgotten. This fight against oblivion has had its reflection in concern to intervene in areas very different from the universal heritage. There is intervention from the urban heritage sets to outdoor to museums as intangible as those who respond to feelings and emotions, and not so much to materials that are touchable. These variants of human culture have been and are the object of modern museography. We must say that, depending on direction to blow wind in the Governments of the country, are interested in spreading a heritage or other. They can ignore too – as it is happening with the industrial heritage has no interest to neo-liberalism – something that only interests if it includes terms such as: solar to build or requalification. That is also, sadly, part of the new current which we face professionals in museums: the lack of political interest in culture. Emerging museography is a strategy, which responds to the development projects of low-budget and furniture equipment low-profile. All that is out of this form of project is likely to fail.

EVE01Emerging museums, terms linked to museography and not diving draws news of interaction between public opinion and culture, in unusual scenarios so far

Another example of what is related to the new museografias, pop-up museography, is the attempt of Museum cities, neighborhoods, streets, and exteriors of buildings. An effort to modernize the impact that these historic facilities are above all who visit them or walking near them. To put it another way, it is increase the educational value to heritage from abroad. There is currently a serious exercise in many cities throughout the world to identify landmarks as pillars cultural native and differentiators. It is not so much signal monuments, it’s Museum spaces outdoors, provide them with historicity and fight then against the ruin which is forgotten. Lisbon is a clear example of this urban musealization effort, but there are many others. Already not everything depends exclusively on the State of conservation, which is very important, but the degree of didactic communication that develops this heritage to the public. We could use another term very much in vogue at present: is living heritage.500x_amnhThe advance of new technologies of communication in the Museum project has opened us a world full of possibilities

In addition, the development of new technologies at the service of museography, open a world of new possibilities of cultural diffusion. Applications for mobile phones, smartphones without going any further, now have applications that show the user skits of the historical life in relation to a particular historical heritage. modern museography has due to adapt to these new possibilities without confronting them as enemy of traditional museography, but as elements of support for teaching the historical content broadcasting. We are in luck because these emerging technologies are also weapons against oblivion, provided they have sufficient appeal to capture the attention of your users. If non serve pulled immediately, carries a second time to do so, and must also be free. Everything that has to do with internet and Museology is also emerging. An entirely new world to explore and which already requires the intervention of new communication systems expert curators. As Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story said: “to infinity and beyond…”
