The correlation between academic research and curatorial practice is both a far from obvious process and a crucial mean to recontextualise artefacts in the peculiar environment of museums. In recent years, the rise of the digital age and the development of new media and technologies have been both a fantastic and underestimated opportunity for scholars and curators alike to rethink their practice and relationship to the public. This course aims at providing the students with a hands-on experience of this debates. It is designed as both a research project on objects as bearer of socio-historic meaning and of aesthetic, economic or cultural values, and as a curatorial project exploring contemporary issues in art and cultural heritage mediation.
