The Role of Ethnographical Museums and Cultural Heritage in promoting the World Solidarity through artfacts and symbols [IUAES Commission on Museums and Cukltural Heritage]


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 31 Aug 10:00 - 11:45


Room 2.100

Researches and exhibitions on the ethographic collections of regional museums can be an asset for the enhancement of new theories . Regional museum can work as a bridge between various cultures and illuminate the need for the develop of national solidarity. Unfortunately, in many countries people do not have a sense of their own cultures and communities. If there is a natural crises people do not know even the geographical location of the regions. There is a need to develop the regional museums which are the part of the local cultures. This will help to create a national identity and a sense of world solidarity. Most of the national museums in various countries do not know have the arifacts of even neighbouring countries. The idea about the cultures of the people , residing in other continents are not known. An Anthroplogical student of a university does know about the cultures and tribal communities of other countries. He knows the name because of the research of famous anthropologists.The ethnographical museums can suppliment the information and bring the other communites as a visual text book to the social sciences. Museum exhibitions should also rotate to other countries and display the unknown cultures with the help of photograps, films, exhibitions and publications. Unlike Boas, Malinowski , Levi Srauss and others , who not only created concepts but also collected objects and exhibited in museums. Museums with cultures can create a world solidarity and enhace our sciences.

Rock Art is a consistent cultural attribute present across the globe in diverse geographies and ecologies. If there is any impression of the human body prominently and directly embodying the rock art, it can be said to be of hands.
