The Power of Collecting and Collections (joint session with GLASS, ICDAD)

HYBRID FORMAT

23 August 2022, 14:30–16:00, Prague Congress Centre

Collecting as a practice and the collections that result from this practice are crucial for museums. Collecting and collections embody power on many different levels – providing insights and basic knowledge, illustrating specific practices of our work to the widest audiences, and forming a basis for contextualizing our world. How have museums, collecting, and collections influenced communities? How have groundbreaking exhibitions impacted museums and collections? We encourage original papers that discuss the practice and results of collecting as powerful tools in the fields of decorative arts and design, glass, and costume.
