    Steps toward Remapping the Museum

    Cultural Trade in the Empires of Knowledge: Northern Museums as Sites of Accumulation.

    Remapping the museum involves more than re-situating the institution within today's digital culture. It also requires investigating what effects modern museum culture has had on the histories of themselves. The items preserved and exhibited in museums characteristically imply regimes of use and meaning that not only resist standard museum practices but can indeed be mobilized to transform them. We argue that re-situating collections reveals new assemblages of human and non-human agencies and artefacts that are not visible in the instruct-and-give-pleasure culture of the conventional museum, not to speak of less readily avowable practices of acquiring and hoarding.

    Yves Abrioux is Professor of English literature at the University of Paris 8. His research centers on art and literature in relation to philosophy, science and technology. His publications take in poetry and fiction, visual art, landscape and gardens. In addition to his work at Paris 8, he has taught at the École du Louvre (Paris). Abrioux has exhibited work made in collaboration with the artist Gianni Burattoni, in group exhibitions in France and Great Britain and in solo exhibitions and installations in galleries and institutional venues in France and Italy. In addition to his books and articles on the artists Ian Hamilton Finlay and Bill Culbert, he has written numerous catalogue essays and reviewed multiple exhibitions for a broad range of art journals and magazines throughout Europe.

    Kenneth Knoespel is Professor at Georgia Tech where he has appointments in the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture and the School of History and Sociology. His published research includes books and articles on changing narratives in the history of science and technology. In addition to interpretive practices in the natural and human sciences, his work engages cognition and visual practice.  He has held visiting appointments at the University of Uppsala, Cornell University, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Russian Academy of Science, St. Petersburg, the Stockholm Center for Baltic and Eastern European Studies, and the University of Paris 8 (Vincennes-St. Denis). He is a research fellow at CEEBS for the fall term 2018.
