羅浮宮與博物館的二重性格Louvre and the Duo Personality of Museum (10/06/2017)
In the 18th Century, two highly influential public museums were opened: the British Museum and the Louvre. While the British Museum upheld a scholarly, elitist tradition of the private museum, the Louvre, as a reflection of the spirit of the French Revolution and as a gesture of democracy, declared the opening of a museum for everyone. The two museums set two distinctive, frequently contradictory directions of running museum that continues to disturb the operation and development of museums today. The talk will discuss the path set by Louvre, and how it influences the vision, missions and operation of museums.
