HERITAGE AND THEORETICAL COMPREHENSION MODELS: THE WEALTH OF ACCUMULATION – THE POWER OF IMAGINATION
Text topic: New Museology Between Theory and Practice
Text author: Јелена Плавичић
This paper is a reminder of the hermeneutical problem in heritology which spans from comprehension to interpretation of heritage. The question of perception of the manifestational world, and further the possibility of a dialogue of diverse sciences in contemplating heritage leads to creating a “dialogue” of the modern man with the heritage. By learning about the content of the structure of a cultural asset, the analogue theoretical model is clarified. A special attention is given to the model of the Moebius strip, taken from the mathematical discourse. With its characteristics, unorientability and onesidedness that is tested by imprints on a “single” side of the strip, it responds a stable, material and changeable semantics of the item of heritage, realised in motion through time. This model can offer better understanding and interpretation of the manifestational reality and of the heritage as accumulated past.
