Репрезентация Гражданской войны на Юге России в музеях Ростовской области
The reflection of the events of the Civil War of 1918-1920 in the exposition of a number of historical museums of the Rostov Region is reviewed. Although this land has become one of the main centers of the emergence of anti-Bolshevik resistance in Russia, the expositions presented do not meet the contemporary level of analyze of the Civil War.
Contemporary museums of memory are united by an important social function of perpetuation and edification, but each museum is contextual and creates its own form of representation, rhetoric, and a measure of performance memory of past events. Describing and understanding specific genres as social actions in a particular social and political context allows researchers to explore museums more effectively. A prerequisite for this efficiency is perhaps the performativity of current styles of museum exposition, as well as tracking the resonance as a response to the coherence of the content and form of museum practice. Thus, a museum visitor is not only an object of a directed museum narrative that has social and rhetorical-moralizing tasks, but also a subject resonating in interactive commemoration mode, experiencing and emotionally responding to a participant in the interaction. So, the object of this article is emotions and affects, generated intentionally or spontaneously in relation to plots of institutionalized commemoration. Empirical cases, designed to illustrate the production of emotions and affects, will cover a wide repertoire of commemoration - from restrained to pathetic, museum and extramusean, imposed and spontaneous.
Cultural diplomacy has traditionally been a strategic instrument of national governments to achieve foreign policy objectives. Nation states have supported the international missions of museums to promote national cultural ideas and values abroad to pursue strategic geopolitical interests. However, in the twenty-first century the complex process of neoliberal globalisation and political decentralisation have transformed traditional cultural diplomacy based on exclusively national projections. There are new forms, channels and narratives of cultural diplomacy that emerge with the appearance of new types of cultural institutions, such as franchise museums, like Guggenheim Bilbao, Hermitage Amsterdam or Louvre Abu Dhabi. This article explores the case of Louvre Abu Dhabi to exemplify the phenomenon of ‘glocal’ museum diplomacy that rests on global ambitions of the local Abu Dhabi government and at the same time draws on national aspirations of France to strengthen its geopolitical presence and influence in the Middle East. The article identifies multiple museum narratives that transform museum diplomacy from a bilateral, state-initiated strategic activity into a multilateral and multidirectional endeavour engaging stakeholders and audiences on local, national and global levels.
The term “intelligentsia” meaning an educated and “progressive-minded” layer of people was introduced in Russia regardless of the prior popular opinion of P.D. Boborykin. The Russian term is preceded by the German and French analogues: “Intelligenz” and “intellectual” that signified people not belonging to the higher ranks of the “old order”, but differing from the nascent bourgeoisie due to their education, tastes, inclination to criticize the existing regime not corresponding to the criteria if justice and rationality. The researchers of this term evolution note the parallelism of the semantic evolution of “intelligentsia” and “civilization”: concurrent change from adjectives to nouns, definition of the action field of the educated elite. Intelligentsia determined the direction of the culture development. In this regard its function is similar to the function of the ruling power, but in a different notional field. Intellectuals are the ideologists of “par excellence”, they bring meaningfulness to social reality for the uneducated masses.

Global Trends in Museum Diplomacy traces the transformation of museums from publicly or privately funded heritage institutions into active players in the economic sector of culture. Exploring how this transformation reconfigured cultural diplomacy, the book argues that museums have become autonomous diplomatic players on the world stage. The book offers a comparative analysis across a range of case studies in order to demonstrate that museums have gone global in the era of neoliberal globalisation. Grincheva focuses first on the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, which is well known for its bold revolutionising strategies of global expansion: museum franchising and global corporatisation. The book then goes on to explore how these strategies were adopted across museums around the world and analyses two cases of post-Guggenheim developments in China and Russia: the K11 Art Mall in Hong Kong and the International Network of Foundations of the State Hermitage Museum in Russia. These cases from more authoritarian political regimes evidence the emergence of alternative avenues of museum diplomacy that no longer depend on government commissions to serve immediate geo-political interests. Global Trends in Museum Diplomacy will be a valuable resource for students, scholars and practitioners of contemporary museology and cultural diplomacy. Documenting new developments in museum diplomacy, the book will be particularly interesting to museum and heritage practitioners and policymakers involved in international exchanges or official programs of cultural diplomacy.
