Narratives


items tell tales ...



We will collect narratives (referring to the items of the collection) from Thai informants, which is a new approach for museums. Therefore all interested Thais (from whose environment the objects originate) are invited to participate in the project by contributing their knowledge about the artifacts from personal usage or personal reminiscence of such items in order to revive these objects of their cultural heritage. Thais can make these lifeless objects talk and narrate tales and history and thus make their genuine cultural context visible. These narratives continuously will be added to the respective sites in the collection galleries.
