Reinterpreting Museum, Eduardo Rega

Fall 2018

Decolonized museums aim to promote continued communication with indigenous people and execute the return of artifacts. Space of the decolonized museum will take the form of an exhibition, which will be centered on stories of artifacts and interaction among visitors, scholars and artists from the original communities of artifacts, away from the exhibition that is obsessed with physical objects. The new museum will be a place for communication of history with ample scenographies about the stories of artifacts. Artists from the original communities of artifacts participate in making scenographies. The museum designed as non-directional space will encourage visitors to approach the stories of artifacts in various ways. Visitors learn the history of artifacts by looking into diorama box or experience scenography within space of the museum.
