The exhibition Museum Laboratory reflects the work on the permanent exhibition of the Museum. Starting from the Museum collection as the main source for researching social phenomena and historical moments important for understanding the experience of life in Yugoslavia, the exhibition examines the Yugoslav heritage and the institution of the Museum. In addition to the curators, other experts, various communities, as well as the audience are involved in the Laboratory, while the artistic interventions on the exhibition are part of the practice of joint reflection on Yugoslav heritage with actors from the local art scene.
Workers and Factories – Work in Progress! In accordance with the theme that is in focus this year, the curators of the Museum are preparing interventions on the exhibition, so the audience might find them solving conceptual and practical dilemmas in front of open exhibit windows, choosing exhibits, placing and fitting in description texts. Visitors are invited to comment on the spot and intervene where they think they should.
As part of the exhibition, the artistic intervention One Step Forward, Two Steps Back by Rena Rädle and Vladan Jeremić has been presented. Electric Lust, Fossil Regress, Planetary Ownership and Finality of the Ore are just a few expressive names of art objects purposefully designed through a dialog with selected objects from the Museum’s collections.
In the exhibition space, the youngest visitors can see the maps, which can help them set off to a Journey around the World and learn about distant lands, customs and cultures, but also get to know the Museum’s collection better.
