The Making of a Point of View
Spotlights on the Indonesian and Malaysian Collections
24 February – 20 May 2018
Opening: 23 February 2018, 4:30 p.m.
Museo delle Civiltà – Museo Preistorico Etnografico “L. Pigorini”
The exhibition "The Making of a Point of View" presented four independent installations each of which offered different points of view on a part of the heritage of the Museo delle Civiltà. Along with the usual display of objects, which were collected during the geographical explorations of the nineteenth century, the audience experienced a mixture of the languages of contemporary art, autobiographical narration and a historical and museological approach, making it the starting point for creative, cognitive, formative and rediscovery processes. The interweaving of these elements set in motion a process that surpasses the linearity of a classical exhibition.
