"On the final leg of a 10-year-long world tour, “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs” exhibition will officially open at the Tampozan Special Gallery in the Japanese city of Osaka.

Mapping the Spaces of Museology in Contemporary Culture

Mapping the Spaces of Museology in Contemporary Culture | AUDITORIA, mouseion Broadband | Scoop.it

Where is the museum for the digital generation? We use the term ìthe distributed museumî to describe the form that the museum takes as it is part of the creation and movement among new spaces that comprise contemporary networked learning environments. No longer located in a particular physical space, the museum extends its presence through all sorts of virtual spaces on the Web as well as in the transient spaces created through the diverse practices and technologies of mobility. This paper offers an analytical framework to describe and map the museology of the distributed museum as it unfolds across conceptual divides between physical and the virtual, the fixed and the mobile, and closed and open.

On Valentine's day, a museum for broken hearts | AUDITORIA, mouseion Broadband | Scoop.it

What becomes of a garden gnome hurled in fury at a car during a stormy breakup?

Or a teddy bear that was once a Valentine's Day present? A wedding dress from a marriage gone awry? An ax that smashed through household furniture?

All are on display at the Museum of Broken Relationships in the Croatian capital, each with written testimonies telling tales of passion, romance and heartbreak.

How this impressive ensemble ended up in Berlin is quite a story. Apparently, in the 19th century, the Germans probably felt left out as the other European powers scrambled for fragments from the past.
