MALRAUX AND DELOCHE – A CONVERSATION ON THE MUSEUM
Text topic: New Museology Between Theory and Practice
Text author: Бојана Спасојевић
This paper is dedicated to posing questions arising from contemplating the concepts of imaginary and virtual museums. Since a virtual museum, as interpreted by Deloche, primarily represents an imaginary museum (as defined by Malraux) it is necessary to establish a relation between these two similar concepts and point to their potential importance for understanding the museum as such. By implicit rejection of the distinction between museology and new museology for being futile in solving museological antinomies, this paper fully submits to the contemplation of the museum and its disciplinary definitions from the position of Deloch’s interpretation of museology as a ‘’philosophical discipline’’.
