MUZEJI (2)

#Erasmus


Andrej je tokrat obiskal Mednarodni grafični likovni center (MGLC) in Mestni muzej. Subjektiven vtis o ogledanem si lahko preberemo v pričujočem prispevku.


In my third blog post I will discuss two museums, since I had time to visit only two of them. I had visitors from Zagreb during the whole weekend and in general my weekend was amazing. The more you walk around Ljubljana; you realize how small the city really is and that to see almost everything around the city one afternoon is more than enough. We were lucky and this week because the weather was more like late spring instead of early and the city had a food festival in Pogačar square with barbeque food and craft beers. To end this digression, I will return to the museums now. The museums I visited this time disappointed me. The first museum I visited was the Mednarodni grafični likovni center or MGLC for short. The museum had a convenient exhibition about Japanese and Slovenian ties during 70tees Yugoslavia. I have graduated Contemporary history and my master thesis is about Japan in World War II, so naturally I was interested. However, the exhibition was really small and not as interesting as I thought it will be, so I was left disappointed. I did take a few photos just for memory, and maybe to remember the nice scenery that is in front of the museum. I really don’t have anything else to say about this museum.

The second museum I visited was the Ljubljana city museum and I have to say that was also a letdown. It is split into three different museums. Archeological part hosts the old relics found before civilizations settled around Ljubljana and Ivan Cankar museum is about the famous Slovenian poet. The biggest part is the museum about the city, and it is the best part. The problem I had with the whole museum was not because it was bad, but because I have already seen two museums on the same topic: The one in the National museum of Slovenia and the Museum of Slovenian History in the Ljubljana castle. All three museums deal with the same topics and are really similar to each other, also lack uniqueness. The highlight is the 3D “painting” with all the historical and interesting persons from the Slovenian history. It is an exceptional piece of art and it is worth to see it, but as I said, I have already seen it on film in the Ljubljana museum before. It definitely affected the impact because I knew what the “gimmick” of the piece of art was. I’m not going to mention it so I don’t do the same to the reader what the film did to me. In front of the Museum I work there was a “Zastava” car that was produced in Yugoslavia and is a symbol from the times of socialism and “brotherhood and unity” but is no longer present. The same vehicle is also present in the Ljubljana City museum. I really don’t understand why repeat the same exhibits in different museums since it derails the quality of both. All in all, it seems that I have already visited the bread and butter of the museums in Ljubljana, but that is a subjective thought. I still have a few museums to visit around Ljubljana, so you can expect another post in the next few weeks about museums.

Moj tretji prispevek na blogu se bo posvetil dvema muzejema, ki sem ju imel čas obiskati v prejšnjih dneh. Med vikendom se je pri meni mudil obisk iz Zagreba in tako je bil pretekli vikend zame v splošnem res čudovit. Več kot se sprehajam po Ljubljani, bolj opažam kako majhna je pravzaprav in tako si lahko mesto ogledate v zgolj enem popoldnevu. Tudi sicer je bila sreča, saj je vreme dajalo občutek bolj pozne kot zgodnje pomladi. V mestu je na Pogačarjevem trgu potekal tudi kulinarični festival s ponudbo hrane na žaru in piva lokalnih pridelovalcev. A naj se vrnem k obisku muzejev. Muzeja, ki sem ju obiskal, sta me razočarala. Prvi, ki sem ga obiskal je bil Mednarodni grafični likovni center ali na kratko MGLC. V muzeju je trenutno na ogled razstava o japonski in jugoslovanski grafiki v času 1970.ih. Diplomiral sem iz novejše zgodovine in se v magistrski nalogi ukvarjal prav z Japonsko v času druge svetovne vojne, zato me je tematika razstave še toliko bolj pritegnila. A razstava je bila precej majhna in sploh ne tako zanimiva kot sem na začetku mislil da bo, zato sem muzej zapuščal precej razočaran. Naredil sem še nekaj fotografij za spomin, da bi se kasneje lahko spominjal prijetnega vzdušja, ki je vladalo pred muzejem.

Drugi muzej, ki sem ga obiskal je bil Mestni muzej, ki me prav tako ni navdušil. Razdeljen je na tri različne dele. Arheološki del zajema predmete, ki so bili najdeni pred stalno naselitvijo v okolici Ljubljane. V prostoru za občasne razstave najdemo razstavo o pomembnem slovenskem pisatelju Ivanu Cankarju. Največji del muzeja zavzema zgodba o mestu, ki je hkrati tudi njegov najboljši del. Muzej sam po sebi ni slab, a me je presenetilo, da sem pravzaprav obiskal že dva muzeja s podobno tematiko: Narodni muzej in Muzej slovenske zgodovine na Ljubljanskem gradu. Vsi trije muzeji predstavljajo podobno tematiko in so si tako izjemno podobni in jim zato manjka košček unikatnosti. Izpostaviti pa moram 3D »sliko« z zgodovinskimi in pomembnimi osebnostmi iz slovenske zgodovine. Je res poseben košček umetnosti, a kot sem že omenil, sem predmet na filmu že videl na Ljubljanskem gradu. Je pa to zagotovo tisto delo, ki se obiskovalcu vtisne v spomin. Pred muzejem v katerem delam stoji avtomobil znamke »Zastava«, popularen avtomobil jugoslovanskega obdobja, ki je hkrati simbol časov socializma ter »bratstva in enotnosti«, ki so minili. Enako vozilo je na ogled tudi v Mestnem muzeju. Ne razumem, zakaj se podobne razstave ponavljajo v različnih muzejih, saj jim to zmanjšuje kvaliteto. Videti je, kot da sem do sedaj že obiskal ljubljansko muzejsko smetano, kar je seveda povsem moja, subjektivna, misel. Še vedno mi je ostalo nekaj muzejev v Ljubljani, tako da bom o njih lahko razpravljal v katerem od prihajajočih prispevkov.
