SG #130: Das Deutsche Museum  

Wie Ihr wahrscheinlich wisst, lebe ich in München. München liegt im Süden von Deutschland, genauer gesagt in Bayern. München ist die Landeshauptstadt von Bayern. Hier leben 1,5 Millionen Menschen, und damit ist München nach Berlin und Hamburg die drittgrößte Stadt Deutschlands. Mitten durch die Stadt fließt ein Fluss, die Isar. Es ist ein recht kleiner Fluss, auf ihm können keine Schiffe fahren, weil das Wasser zu seicht ist. Jedenfalls gibt es in diesem Fluss einige Inseln. Und auf einer dieser Inseln steht das Deutsche Museum, über das ich Euch heute etwas erzählen möchte. Das Deutsche Museum wurde 1925 eröffnet. Es ist das größte naturwissenschaftlich-technische Museum der Welt. Es gibt dort 28.000 Objekte zu sehen! 1,5 Millionen Menschen kommen jedes Jahr als Besucher in dieses Museum. Einer dieser Menschen bin ich – unsere Familie hat eine Jahreskarte für das Museum. Das bedeutet, wir haben uns eine teure Karte gekauft, die ein ganzes Jahr lang gilt, und mit der wir zu dritt ins Museum gehen können, wann immer wir möchten. Der große Vorteil davon, das habe ich letztes Wochenende gemerkt: Wir müssen nicht in der Schlange anstehen, um uns Karten an der Kasse zu kaufen. Wir können direkt ins Museum gehen. Und letztes Wochenende, als es regnete und kalt war, dauerte es über eine Stunde lang, bis man an der Kasse war! So viel Geduld hätte ich wahrscheinlich nicht. Die wahrscheinlich berühmteste Abteilung im Deutschen Museum ist das Bergwerk. Erst geht man viele Stufen in den Keller hinunter, bis man im Bergwerk ankommt. Es ist natürlich kein echtes Bergwerk, sondern nachgebaut, aber die Atmosphäre ist bedrückend echt. Man sieht hier Pferde und Menschen aus Holz ihre Arbeit verrichten im dreckigen, dunklen Schacht. Als Kind hatte ich Angst davor, in diese Abteilung zu gehen. In den Kriegsjahren versteckten sich hier unten die Münchner Bürger vor den Bombenangriffen. Es gibt viele andere Abteilungen, die ebenso interessant sind. Da sind die großen, alten Dampfmaschinen, die Abteilung für Raumfahrt oder eine winzig kleine Ziegelei, also eine Fabrik, die Ziegel herstellt. Ziegel sind rechteckige Steine, mit denen man Häuser bauen kann. Es gibt eine Abteilung für Musikinstrumente, eine für Mathematik, eine für Starkstromtechnik. Hier gibt es regelmäßig Vorführungen – ein Besucher darf sich in einen Faradayschen Käfig setzen und wird dann mit einem Blitz „beschossen“. In einer anderen Abteilung steht ein komplettes U-Boot, das an einer Seite aufgeschnitten wurde, damit man auch den Motor, die Batterien und die Torpedos sehen kann. Um sich alles anzusehen, braucht man ungefähr drei Tage. Und auch dann hat man noch nicht alles verstanden und gelesen, was es hier zu sehen gibt. Früher standen hier auch noch Lokomotiven, Autos und Flugzeuge – die sind aber mittlerweile umgezogen. Es gibt zwei weitere Museen in München, die zum Deutschen Museum gehören. Die Flugwerft Schleißheim, wo jetzt alles zum Thema Fliegen zu besichtigen ist, und das Verkehrszentrum an der Theresienwiese, also in der Nähe des Oktoberfests. Während manche Abteilungen sehr neu gestaltet sind, mit gut verständlichen Tafeln, die uns Laien die Wissenschaft erklären, sind manch andere Abteilungen sehr veraltet. Diese werden nun nach und nach renoviert – Ihr könnt Euch vorstellen, wie teuer das ist! Für Kinder gibt es ein extra Kinderreich, hier können Kinder auf einer riesigen Gitarre spielen, Flaschenzüge ausprobieren und Kugelbahnen bauen. Falls Ihr mal nach München kommt und das Wetter ist schlecht: Geht unbedingt ins Deutsche Museum! Text der Episode als PDF: http://slowgerman.com/folgen/sg130kurz.pdf

A Home for Black History  

In what is described as the fitting coda to his administration, President Obama cut the ribbon of the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture on 24 September. Journalists Jesse J Holland and Robin N Hamilton are onsite in Washington DC for BBC World Service to hear from the architects, curators, donors, and expectant visitors who have travelled hundreds of miles to celebrate its grand opening. Taking the last spot on America’s National Mall, the museum – a beautiful three-tiered structure sheathed in bronze metalwork - opens after what’s described as the hardest curatorial job in history. It has been more than ten years in the making. It’s a museum that will explain, celebrate and confront the African American experience. At a time of racial tension, its mission to heal is seen as vital too. Museum director Lonnie Bunch, congressman John Lewis and judge Robert Wilkins describe the challenges of creating a museum which aims to tell the story of America through the lens of the African American experience. A story which is bound to provoke distress and anger as well as joy and admiration - something the museum’s 250 volunteers are being specially trained to deal with. We hear from two founding donors, Samuel L Jackson and General Colin Powell about the importance of having a national museum dedicated to African American history and culture. From locations across the USA - Philadelphia, Detroit, Houston, St Louis, Nashville - we uncover stories behind the museum’s varied new acquisitions, largely told by the donors themselves: from Harriet Tubman’s Hymn book to Lauren Anderson’s ballet shoes, protest banners from Ferguson, the late music producer J Dilla’s synthesizer, and a former slave’s printing press. And we follow inspirational young divers in South Florida working in partnership with the museum to locate long-lost slave wrecks.

Deirdre Lawrence 1/1  

Deirdre Lawrence has been the Principal Librarian at the Brooklyn Museum since late 1983. Before coming to the Brooklyn Museum, she was Associate Librarian at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She received her M.L.S. from Pratt Institute and studied art history on the graduate level. Deirdre tells us how she became a librarian at the Brooklyn Museum and why the profession appealed to her so much in the first place. We talk about the Museum’s collection. How the collection is built and how they acquire their artist books. We also wonder if Deirdre has a personal favourite within the collection. And because she is working with and around books all day, we’re curious what her personal collection consists of. Recorded at the Klingspor Museum – Symposium on the occasion of their 60th birthday – in Offenbach Germany.

Daniel Libeskind  

An international figure in architecture Daniel Libeskind is renowned for his ability to evoke cultural memory in buildings. Born in Poland in 1946, Libeskind emigrated to the United States as a teenager and performed as a musical virtuoso, before eventually leaving music to study architecture. He began his career as an architectural theorist and professor, holding positions at various institutions around the world. In 1989, he won the international competition to build the Jewish Museum in Berlin. A series of influential museum commissions followed, including Imperial War Museum North, Manchester; Denver Art Museum; Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco; Royal Ontario Museum; and the Military History Museum, Dresden. In 2003, Studio Libeskind won another historic competition-to create a master plan for the rebuilding of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. In this extended interview, Daniel Libeskind gives John Wilson insights into his design process and the sometimes surprising artistic inspirations behind his buildings.

Talk: House/Museum by Dr Anthony Hudek  

On 28 September 2011, as part of  the Freud Museum London 25th Anniversary programme, Dr Anthony Hudek gave a fascinating talk which was recorded for this podcast.

When, and how, does a house become a museum – a ‘house museum’? How does this passage from one function to another affect the visitor’s experience? Taking Freud’s 1919 text ‘Das Unheimliche’ (‘The Uncanny’) as point of departure, this presentation seeks to identify what subsists, what survives when a house turns into a museum: the ghosts of its former occupants, the archive (once a personal collection of papers, books, memorabilia), and a sense (reassuring or unsettling) of domesticity.

But Freud’s text does more than provide a useful guide to what lingers in the house museum, in particular his own. It plays out the paradox of the uncanny: that if the house museum, like the psychoanalytic text, depends on the veracity of its portrayal of the subjective matter it tries to ex [...]

Human Remains in Museums  

Many museums around the world hold human bodies and body parts. Egyptian mummies draw huge crowds curious about our ancient past and specimens in medical museums allow us to imagine our own bodies from the inside. Many of these museum objects have become highly contested. Whilst some people may look at them and see artefacts or tools for knowledge, for others, human remains remain human. Shivaani Kohok explores why storing and displaying human remains in museums is so contentious. Many human remains in medical museums were obtained without the consent of the people they were removed from: curators like Carla Valentine of the Barts Pathology Museum in London argue that they should be preserved because they tell a story of the history of medicine, and may still be useful for scientific study. Bob Weatherall has been campaigning for decades to get museums to return remains of Aboriginal Australians to their communities of origin so they can be respectfully laid to rest. Chip Colwell, curator of Anthropology at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, explains how museums in America have reacted to calls for the repatriation of Native American human remains. Alice Dreger, historian and philosopher of anatomy, believes that museums should consider whether some repatriation claims could result in a loss of scientific learning.

#7: You’ve Got to Watch This!  

Way before viral videos, since the invention of the medium in the 1960s, artists have made video to critique the culture around them. Howardena Pindell delivers a direct-to-camera account of the racism she experienced coming of age as a black woman in America; Martine Syms tells her characters’ stories across several screens -- from flatscreens to smartphones. Abbi and the comedian Hannibal Buress ponder the sweeping shots in Steve McQueen’s video of the Statue of Liberty. Plus, hear one of Abbi’s own video experiments from her art school days!

Jewish Museum in Munich: "Our history is not just a history of loss and sufferance"

002 - Brains, objects and deep history  

What makes us human? Iszi Lawrence, host of the British Museum Membercast, thinks it’s the wearing of socks but fortunately she’s keeping an open mind on the subject. In the second episode of the Membercast, Iszi meets Clive Gamble, Professor of Archaeology at the University of Southampton, to unpick this question. Using the oldest objects in the British Museum to illustrate his argument, Clive explores the development of the human imagination in a lively and wide-ranging interview. The conversation is interspersed with excerpts from Clive’s sell-out Members’ lecture from 2016, Brains, objects and deep history.

Clive Gamble is a Trustee of the British Museum and Chairman of the British Museum Friends Advisory Council.

The British Museum Membercast is a monthly podcast made available to ‘all studious and curious persons’. Comedian, podcaster and super-fan Iszi Lawrence (The Z List Dead List) presents snippets from exclusive Members’ lectures at the Museum, artfully woven together with interviews and her own musings.

Please share your comments and feedback about the podcast! You can talk to us on Twitter @britishmuseum using the hashtag #membercast or email friends@britishmuseum.org

Universitetet på Tøyen - Museum podkast 28/8  

Da det endelig ble bestemt at Norge skulle få sitt første universitet, var det Bergverksseminaret på Kongsberg som ble valgt i 1811. Der var allerede den naturvitenskapelige undervisningen i gang, men ganske snart ble planene om utbygging skrinlagt. ”Kongsberg har en høyst melankolsk beliggenhet, uegnet for studenter” , mente man i København. Dermed kjøpte kong Frederik VI den adelige setegården Tøyen, langt ute på landet utenfor Christiania. Her var det mulig å innkvartere de syv professorene, anlegge Botanisk have og dyrke opp løkkene som en del av den professorale gasje. I MUSEUM forteller Bjørn Vidar Johansen fra Museum for universitets og vitenskapshistorie om de første årene av Universitetets 200 år lange historie. Selv om man leide midlertidige lokaler i Kvadaturen, og de kjente bygningene ved Karl Johan ble bygget i 1850-årene, forlot man aldri planene om å satse på Tøyen. – Helt fram til 1910 var planene klare for utvidelser på Tøyen, sier Johansen. I MUSEUM tar Johansen oss med til loftet på Zoologisk Museum, hvor det finnes unike glassplater med fotografier og gjenstander som ble vist fram i de aller første utstillingene i Oslo sentrum. – Tusenvis av mennesker strømmet til de eksotiske utstillingene i Zoologisk museum og Oldsaksamlingen i 1880-årene, sier Johansen. Historiker Anne Vaalund fra MUV forteller også om fotoutstillingen ”Universitetsliv”, som blant annet viser bilder fra ”klassekampen i fotball” på universitetsplassen på 1960-tallet. Konservative mot sosialister.

The Black Museum - The Raincoat (01-22-52)  


The Raincoat (Aired January 22, 1952)
The idea of a crime museum was conceived by Inspector Neame who had already collected together a number of items, with the intention of giving police officers practical instruction on how to detect and prevent burglary. It is this museum that inspired the Black Musuem radio series. The museum is not open to members of the public but is now used as a lecture theatre for the curator to lecture police and like bodies in subjects such as Forensic Science, Pathology, Law and Investigative Techniques. A number of famous people have visited the musuem including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Orsen Welles hosted and narrated the shows. Following the opening, Mr. Welles would introduce the museum's item of evidence that was central to the case, leading into the dramatization. THIS EPISODE: January 22, 1952. Program #34. Syndicated, AFRTS rebroadcast. "The Raincoat". A man's wife is found murdered. The husband is suspected and found guilty, but reasonable doubt spares him from death. The date is approximate. Orson Welles (narrator), Harry Alan Towers (producer), Sidney Torch (composer, conductor), Ira Marion (writer). 28:49. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.


The Black Museum - The Brass Button (05-10-53)  


The Brass Button (Aired May 10, 1953)
Noted Crime Reporter Percy Hoskins of London's Daily Express was integral to the development of both Whitehall 1212 and Secrets of Scotland Yard. To that end, it's worth noting that the more dramatic, morbid, or salacious elements of The Black Museum's presentations aren't nearly as exacting in detail or as precise in background as those of Secrets of Scotland Yard and Whitehall 1212. Nor, one might well argue, should they have been. By the time that The Black Museum aired, both Whitehall 1212 and Secrets of Scotland Yard had broadcast virtually all of the crimes behind The Black Museum's scripts. They didn't so much steal The Black Museum's thunder as much as virtually demand that. Show Notes From The Digital Deli.

Åpning i Neiden  

Østsamisk museum i Neiden så lenge ut til å bli en evigvarende skandale. I mer enn åtte år har museet stått ferdig uten at det har kunnet åpne. En lang rekke store og små problemer har stått i veien, men fredag 16.juni 2017 blir det stor, offisiell åpning. I MUSEUM forteller museumsleder Honna Havas om noen av de 300 gjenstandene som stilles ut, lånt inn eller langtidsdeponert fra de samiske samlinger i Karasjok, Grenselandmuseet i Kirkenes og Norsk Folkemuseum. - Samarbeidet med Norsk Folkemuseum har vært helt uvurderlig, sier Honna Havas. Det opprinnelige og historiske Skoltelandet strakk seg langt inn i det som er Finland og Russland i dag, sier styreleder Steinar Pedersen. – Meningen med at Sametinget vedtok at Østsamisk museum skulle være deres tusenårssted var å vise solidaritet med den samiske gruppen som har fått lide mest som følge av grensedragninger, fornorskning og manglende støtte, sier Pedersen. Kanskje Ä'vv skoltesamisk museum kan bli en arena for samarbeid med skoltesamiske organisasjoner i Finland og Russland, sier Pedersen. – Og nå burde også Russland og Norge utvide den visumfrie sonen til å gjelde alle de skoltesamiske gruppene som en gang kunne ferdes fritt over grensene, sier han. I MUSEUM møter vi også skoltesamiske Heini Wesslin fra Sevetijãrvi på finsk side av grensen. Der er det ennå et lite, skoltesamisk miljø og det eneste sted i verden det skoltesamiske språket fortsatt brukes. Programleder Øyvind Arntsen

Travel Today With Peter Greenberg – Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colorado  

This week, the Travel Today With Peter Greenberg comes from from the Denver Art Museum in Denver, Colorado.

Esmé Patterson performs her song “River,” and Jennifer Henneman, a curator at the Denver Art Museum, discusses the complex and difficult history of the American west, and how the museum showcases this fascinating—and often misunderstood—heritage. Of course, the show wouldn’t be complete without Kim Day, CEO of Denver International Airport—the last new major airport built in the U.S.—talking about what she’s done to improve the airport experience (think healthier food and the fastest airport WiFi in the country). There’s all of that and more as the Travel Today With Peter Greenberg comes from the Denver Art Museum.
