New futures for replicas

15:24 by Cornelius Holtorf

A new document containing principles and guidance for museums and heritage published under the title “New Futures for Replicas” makes reference to the notion of pastness and an understanding of authenticity as a socially mediated experience, drawing on work by Cornelius Holtorf.

In 2017, Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, was awarded a UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures. This is one of eight Chairs in Sweden, and the only one within the cultural sector. Cornelius Holtorf, holder of the UNESCO Chair, alongside his team, will continue to generate ideas through this forum.
