Publication Release: What’s Missing? Collecting and Exhibiting Europe

Museum Europäischer Kulturen

On 29 January 2021 Reimer Verlag is releasing What’s Missing? Collecting and Exhibiting Europe, a Museum Europäischer Kulturen (MEK, Museum of European Cultures) publication.

The English-language publication takes a closer look into some of the gaps in the work of museums of everyday culture. It asks: Which objects, narratives, methods and protagonists have been left out of museums’ perspectives on the daily lives of European societies?

Museum staff and researchers alike address current transformations in the practices of collecting and exhibiting everyday objects and vernacular art, while short object essays provide new perspectives on artefacts from the collections of the Museum Europäischer Kulturen. This publication invites readers to critically examine questions about what may be lacking in museum practices of collecting and presenting contemporary realities and living environments in Europe.
