EuroVision - Museums Exhibiting Europe (EMEE): Fifth Smaller Meeting of the EU project

09.10.2015

The partners of the international EU Culture project “EuroVision - Museums Exhibiting Europe”, which is co-ordinated by Prof. Dr. Susanne Popp (University of Augsburg), are coming together for their fifth Smaller Meeting, at FRAAP (Fédération des réseaux et associations d’artistes plasticiens), in Paris from October 13th to 16th 2015.

Highlight of the meeting is the 1st implementation of the EMEE Workshop “One Object – Many Visions – EuroVisions. Museums, contemporary artists and target groups” designed by the hosts of ESPE Université Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC) and implemented at the MAC VAL (Musée d'Art Contemporain du Val-de-Marne) on 15th October.

During the fifth Smaller EMEE Meeting the implementation of the so called EuroVision Lab., an experimental series of exhibitions and activities under the title: “One Object – Many Visions – EuroVisions”, will be the main focus.

The EuroVision Lab.s takes place in seven partner institutions and puts to the test the projects results and convey ways for European re-interpretation of local museum objects in a trans-regional way as well as the concepts of social arena and bridging-the-gap to museum visitors.

The meeting in Paris will be dedicated especially to the evaluation of the first EuroVision Lab. activities in Slovenia, Italy, Austria and Bulgaria since July 2015 and the planning of the next EuroVision Lab. events. A second focus of the meeting will be the development of a study module that is meant to be used for teacher and museum expert training seminars.

Subsequent to the meeting the rest run of the EMEE Workshop “One Object – Many Visions – EuroVisions. Museums, contemporary artists and target groups” will take place in the MAC VAL Musée d'Art Contemporain du Val-de-Marne on 15th October. The workshop is designed by the EMEE partner UPEC-ESPE and deals with audience development as well as artistic partnerships in museums.

EMEE partners, museum experts and master students will participate in the workshop and evaluate it afterwards. The final version of the workshop will be available together with the EMEE workshop “How to use scenography for the synaesthetic translation of perspectives? “ designed by EMEE partner Atelier Brückner GmbH, for free download from the EMEE website soon after the meeting.

The fifth Smaller EMEE Meeting taking place at FRAAP (Fédération des réseaux et associations d’artistes plasticiens) is organised by ESPE de l'Académie de Créteil, Université Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC-ESPE).

“EuroVision - Museums Exhibiting Europe” (EMEE) is a European museum development project focusing on national and regional museums. It ist carried out between 2012 and 2016. With innovative and interdisciplinary concepts based on history didactics, the project – funded by the Culture Programme of the European Commission with 2 million Euros – is intended to develop multi perspective approaches for the Europeanization of national and regional museums.

The project explores an innovative, interdisciplinary approach for museums to reinterpret their objects in the broader context of European history. An international and multi-disciplinary team consisting of museum experts, cultural workers and scenographers are engaged in realising this objective.

Furthermore, especially people who usually do not go to museums shall be convinced and invited. New ways of presentation, scenography and possibilities to participate encourage visitors to discover transnational and European perspectives. At the same time, the project develops creative concepts for the audience development and tries to assign a new role to the museum as a “social arena” within an increasingly multicultural society.

The EMEE project is coordinated by the Chair of History Didactics of the University of Augsburg. Project partners are the National Archaeology Museum in Lisbon (Portugal), the National Museum of Contemporary History in Ljubljana (Slovenia), the National Historical Museum in Sofia (Bulgaria), the Atelier Brückner in Stuttgart (Germany), the art association monochrome in Vienna (Austria), the Roma Tre University in Rome (Italy) and the University Paris-Est Créteil – ESPE in Paris (France).

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
