Museum Europäischer Kulturen
The exhibition "passages&repassages", which came into being in connection with the 100th jubilee of the Ethnographic Museum Krakow, tells the stories behind supposedly familiar objects from the museum's collection.
The exhibition's objects were chosen by people who are close to the museum. They include a diverse range of objects from past and present everyday life, such as bulky metal locks, huge beehives, and also paintings by Poland's most famous naive painter, Nikifor. Other exhibits compliment this selection and thus, memories are linked to thought associations. A toy plane for instance tells the story of handmade toys, the story of a grandfather's love to his grandchild, the story of dreams large and small.
The exhibition, hosted at the Museum of European Cultures, explains in 13 episodes the possible influence of seemingly mundane everyday objects on our lives and memories. The exhibition presents the visitor with more than just mere objects. It establishes new levels of meaning and inspires surprising associations. Thus, objects prove to be keys not only to culture, but also to (one's own) memory.
