EuroVision – Museums Exhibiting Europe
The Young Scenographers Contest is part of the project EMEE – EuroVision: Museums Exhibiting Europe. EMEE is a European museum development project for national and regional museums. It is being realised between 2012 and 2016 and funded by the Culture Programme of the European Commission. The project explores an innovative, interdisciplinary approach for museums to reinterpret their objects in the broader context of European history. New means of presentation, participation and staging aim at enabling visitors to gain access to transnational objects and European perspectives. An international and trans-disciplinary team consisting of scientists, museum experts, cultural workers and designers is working towards this objective. The Young Scenographers Contest as part of the EMEE project wants to involve also young and ambitious designers and let them contribute with their creative, innovative ideas.

When I wrote this paper late 2010 for the ICMAH conference in Shanghai “Original – Copy – Fake / On the significance of the object in history and archaeology museums”, headed by the historian and curator Marie-Paule Jungblut, we where working on a competition for the Musée-Cité of Economy and Currency for the Bank of France in Paris. In this project, as in any other, what we where attempting to highlight in the museum spaces was the complexity of human mechanics. It was the opportunity to think about the notions of value and exchange.
