Angela Zieger, „Ich bereite vor: eine Ausstellung nach meinem Tode.“ Zum grafischen, malerischen und kalligrafischen Werk von F.H. Ernst Schneidler

Friedrich Hermann Ernst Schneidler’s (1882 – 1956) work is defined by his creation as a book artist, commercial artist and professor of fonts and graphic design; it is what he is particularly renowned for within the literary world. However, in his 50 yearlong creative period, he also produces a vast corpus of fine art pieces on the sidelines to his daily work - a corpus he mostly keeps concealed from the public. Only a few of his closest confidants are lucky enough to be permitted a glance at these works, he devotes his nights and vacations to.
Therefore, this book mainly discusses Schneidler’s rather under researched alternative corpus. How it came into being will be linked to a context of art history and biographically as well as historically analyzed.

Claudia Selheim (Hrsg.), Reisebegleiter – mehr als nur Gepäck

Aussehen und Material von Reisegepäck passten sich in den letzten 250 Jahren den veränderten Verkehrsmitteln und Bedürfnissen einer zunehmend mobileren Gesellschaft an. Die 23 Beiträge des Ausstellungsbegleitbandes präsentieren die breite Palette an Gepäckstücken von der Gesindetruhe über den Schrankkoffer bis zu Bord-Case und Plastiktüte und bilden nahezu alle Exponate der Ausstellung zumeist in Farbe ab.
Erstmals sind Materialität, Funktionalität und zeitliche Einordnung gemeinsam erfasst. Unterschiedlichste Facetten von „Reisebegleitern“ wie Kofferwerbung, der Gepäckverkehr bei der Bahn, Militärgepäck, der Koffer im Museum, Gepäckversicherung, das Schreiben auf Reisen oder umfangreiche Reiseservice erscheinen in ihrem jeweiligen kulturgeschichtlichen Kontext. Im Anhang sind nach dem Ausstellungsplan die technischen Daten der Exponate erfasst.

Peter Daners, Frederik Poppe, Annika Schank, Melanie Schmitt (Hrsg.), Wechselwirkungen. Kunst im Kontext der Inklusionsdebatte

This conference volume deals with the issue of art and inclusion from interdisciplinary perspectives: Experts from museums as well as from the fields of Rehabilitation Sciences, Art Theory and Disability Studies discuss the artistic production, presentation, mediation and reception of works by artists in need of assistance. In addition to academic research the book also contains methodological reflections: Artist collectives and studios present their working methods and networks, drawing on sample projects they have completed. Questions concerning curatorial practice, inclusive exhibition concepts and the role of the institutions are addressed as well as inclusive approaches to art education. Interviews and reviews introduce the reader to some artists in need of assistance and provide an insight into their work.

ICOM Deutschland (Hrsg.): Difficult Issues. Proceedings of the ICOM international conference 2017

Beiträge zur Museologie, Band 7
Museums are the treasure troves of cultural heritage, places of remembrance and selfassurance. But whose stories are they telling? What is remembered in museums, what is ‘forgotten’? – Around 200 museum experts discussed different concepts of action at the international ICOM 2017 conference. Interim results: In order to secure their acceptance by as many reference groups as possible, museums need to communicate their profiles and environments proactively. They make visible different groups of the population, make their life stories heard and present them as equal parts of a shared cultural heritage.
The conference volume brings together numerous examples from European museums, with which the experts involved would like to strengthen the exchange of expertise and contribute to mutual learning.
