Text author: Милан Попадић
The paper covers the problem of museology as a scientific discipline and its relation to the concept of “new museology”. Starting cases are Museum of Innocence as a model of contemporary museum practice (opened in Istanbul in 2012), and the research of the Museums Association of Great Britain on the public opinion about museums (from 2013). In this respect, research problem described as “modern cultural fictions” arises. By “modern cultural fictions” we recognize imaginative content with cultural value in contemporary world, which can be related with museums or novels. In methodological terms “modern cultural fictions” are heritage of new museology. Thus, the goal of the paper is an interpretation this specific contribution of new museology to museology as a scientific discipline.
