Taught By: Stephanie Nadalo Marcarini

Section: PC1

CRN: 5016

Credits: 3

One of the missions of museums is to preserve and protect art objects, but they also display and produce culture and in doing so they play a significant political and social role. Visits to the numerous Parisian collections and museums will unfold the crucial moments and models in the history of this Western institution from Medieval times to the present - from curiosity cabinets to new media art venues, through royal and imperial collections and ethnographic museums. In-class lectures and intensive theoretical and historical readings and discussions will help students investigate how museums developed along with the disciple of art history, and reflect on the ideological and ethical aspects of the trade in objects and of the presentation of material culture. Open to: All university graduate degree students.
