This web page has been left clean deliberately Chapter four Ethnographic Museums: From Colonial Exposition to Intercultural discussion Fabienne Boursiquot The Musée des Civilisations de l’Europe et de l. a. Méditerranée (MuCEM) is scheduled to open in Marseille in June 2013. This new museum brings jointly collections from the Musée de l’Homme and the Musée nationwide des Arts et Traditions Populaires (MNATP), significant ethnographic museums that opened in Paris in 1937. including different new ‘museums of society’, MuCEM proclaims a shift within the remedy of cultural distinction: while twentieth-century ethnographic museums used to essentially rfile and show different cultures, museums of society current themselves as areas ‘where cultures communicate’ and as intercultural assembly issues. This new undertaking increases definite questions: How precisely will this discussion ensue? Who might be a part of it? What position may be made for the earlier, particularly the colonial prior? during this bankruptcy, I search to provide a family tree of those new museums of society by way of taking into consideration a paradigm shift that happened in anthropology itself. Now that a few ethnographic museums are reconfigured into artwork museums (quai Branly, Paris) or ‘museums of society’ (MuCEM, Marseille), this bankruptcy asks no matter if those new museums are potent how you can decolonise previous ethnographic collections and to foster new relationships among Europe and the previous colonies. I recommend that one of many keys essential to comprehend this museum reconfiguration in France is living within the dating among museums and anthropology that used to be confirmed within the moment half the 19th century, and within the paradigm shift that marked the self-discipline. the belief – valuable to the venture of the ethnographic museum – that it's attainable to reconstitute a society from its gadgets doesn't get up to any extent further. lots of the museums which express items that when belonged to non-Western societies have been validated in a context within which Europe ruled overseas continents; they materialise an asymmetrical relation to those societies. What that means do those museums have now that the colonial period is formally over? In our postcolonial global, it isn't attainable to talk on behalf of non-Western societies, nor to symbolize them or their items with no being preoccupied by way of what they'd say approximately it. because the Nineteen Eighties, there was a starting to be feeling that ethnographic museums are facing a challenge. they've been accused of providing non-Western cultures in a reified and occasionally caricatural demeanour. in accordance with this problem, a majority of ethnographic museums entered right into a redefinition 64 The Postcolonial Museum strategy.
