#Erasmus


Od 18. septembra 2019 se nam je v Muzeju pridružila Tania González, študentka muzeologije iz Španije, ki je pri nas na praksi prek programov izmenjave Erasmus. V prihodnjih tednih bomo lahko prebirali nekaj njenih prispevkov. Prispevku v angleščini sledi še prevod v slovenščini.


Hi everyone! My name is Tania González and I’m a Spanish Erasmus student in Ljubljana. I am currently doing the internship of my second year of MA studies in Cultural Heritage Management and Museology in Slovenia’s National Museum of Contemporary History. I arrived to Ljubljana some months ago, actually in the middle of September. I have been jumping around some museum departments in order to get to know better how a national museum – as this one – works both: internally (curators’ and historians’ work) and externally (social media management or educational programmes).

Perhaps you are wondering, why I choose this museum in order to fulfil my compulsory traineeship. As I am an archaeologist and historian by formation, as well as specialized in the contemporary ages, I wanted an institution, which cares about this type of heritage. For those who do not know, Spain does not have a National History Museum, neither one about the recent past (and I do not think we will ever have one), so such a concrete and sometimes controversial topic was appealing to me. Furthermore, I was interested in acquiring a European perspective to my career: I wanted to know how other EU countries worked in the field of 20th century heritage.

I also wanted to experience an Erasmus exchange (since I did not have the opportunity for this during my degree study years), and Ljubljana is perfect for that. Located in the heart of the continent, Slovenia’s capital is, above all, young, multicultural and full of life. The fact that you have a wide diversity of places, pubs and restaurants, even if it is a small European capital, is a really good point as I live in a shared flat with 4 more people, all of them from different countries: Ireland, Czech Republic, Poland and Spain. Moreover, I also like that Ljubljana is not a really big or overcrowded city, such as Barcelona (where I have lived for six years), so you can avoid daily stress.

Let me talk a bit more about the museum. Right now (and until 16 February 2020) a temporary exhibition about the renowned photojournalist Nace Bizilj is on view. This retrospective exhibition honours him and his generous donative to the museum in 2010, when he donated his entire opus with 300,000 black and white and colour negatives to the museum’s Photography Department. As he began his career in 1962, he has witnessed some of the most important events in the recent Slovenian history, such as the declaration of independence of Slovenia.

It is a simple exhibition, but effective and original at the same time. Two examples of its originality are the concatenation of topics as the common thread (and not the typical chronological order), as well as the lights and shadows play that the colours of the exhibition (white, grey and black) transmit. In short, although it may firstly seem a monotonous photography exhibition, this is not. Bizilj’s work is supported with some objects, author’s quotes, a video (which, unfortunately is only available in Slovenian language) and even a small interactive game.

Anyway, if you are still in doubt about visiting the exhibition, you have a small “snack” outside the museum with a brief selection of Bizilj’s most remarkable photos!

Pozdravljeni! Sem Tania González, španska študentka na Erasmus izmenjavi v Ljubljani. V Muzeju novejše zgodovine Slovenije opravljam pripravništvu v sklopu drugega letnika magistrskega študija menedžmenta kulturne dediščine in muzeologije. V Ljubljano sem prišla sredi septembra in od takrat sem spoznala delo več muzejskih oddelkov in s tem imela priložnost vpogleda, kako deluje nacionalni muzej, tako v notranjosti (delo kustosov, zgodovinarjev) kot navzven (upravljanje socialnih medijev ali izobraževalni programi).

Mogoče se sprašujete, zakaj sem izbrala prav ta muzej za svoje obvezno pripravništvo. Po izobrazbi sem arheologinja in zgodovinarka, specializirana za novejša obdobja, zato sem si želela delati v instituciji, ki skrbi za to vrsto dediščine. Za tiste, ki ne vedo, Španija nima nacionalnega zgodovinskega muzeja, niti takega o nedavni preteklosti (in mislim, da ga sploh ne bomo imeli), zato me je tako konkretna in včasih tudi sporna tema še posebej privlačila. Poleg tega me je zanimalo, kako pridobiti evropsko perspektivo v svoji karieri: želela sem vedeti, kako delujejo druge EU države na področju dediščine XX. stoletja.

Želela sem tudi preizkusiti Erasmus izmenjavo (saj na prvi stopnji študija te priložnosti nisem imela) – in Ljubljana je kot nalašč za to. Prestolnica Slovenije, ki se nahaja v osrčju celine, je predvsem mlada, večkulturna in polna življenja. S tem, da ima široko raznolikost ponudbe, lokalov in restavracij, je, četudi gre za majhno evropsko prestolnico, res dobro izhodišče, saj živim v skupnem stanovanju s še štirimi ljudmi, vsi iz različnih držav: Irska, Češka, Poljska in Španija. Še več, všeč mi je tudi, da Ljubljana ni res veliko ali prenaseljeno mesto, kot je Barcelona (kjer živim šest let), zato se lahko izognete vsakodnevnemu stresu.

Vrnimo se na muzej, kjer je pravkar in do 16. februarja 2020 na ogled občasna razstava o priznanem fotoreporterju Nacetu Bizilj. S to retrospektivno razstavo se mu je muzej poklonil, saj je muzejskemu oddelku za fotografijo leta 2010 velikodušno podaril celoten opus s 300.000 črno-belimi in barvnimi negativi. Ko je kariero začel leta 1962, je bil priča nekaterim najpomembnejšim dogodkom v slovenski novejši zgodovini, prisostvoval je tudi razglasitvi neodvisnosti Slovenije.

Razstava je preprosta, a hkrati učinkovita in izvirna. Dva primera izvirnosti sta združevanje tem kot skupne rdeče niti (in ne tipičnega kronološkega reda) ter tudi igra luči in senc, ki jo prenašajo barve razstave (bela, siva in črna). Čeprav razstava sprva morda daje vtis monotone fotografske razstave, to ni. Biziljevo delo podpirajo nekateri predmeti, avtorjevi citati, video (ki je na žalost na voljo samo v slovenščini) in celo majhna interaktivna igra.

Če še vedno oklevate, ali bi obiskali razstavo, je pred muzejem na voljo tudi majhen predogled s kratkim izborom Biziljevih najbolj izjemnih slik.
