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


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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
