Intangible. Heritage and collective memory, opening of the exhibition

The Slovene Ethnographic Museum and the Embassy of Spain in Slovenia cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition Intangible. Heritage and collective memory on Thursday, 14 September 2023 at 18.00 at the Slovene Ethnographic Museum.

The photographs on display show precious fragments of life, some of which have survived to this day. They show intangible heritage by documenting work, attitudes, gestures, scenes from everyday life, professions and celebrations. Some of the images were taken almost a century apart, but they nevertheless coexist in their own way and show us the reality of different aspects of the past that have often been overlooked in the study of culture and its related interpretations.

The intangible world described here is seen through the eyes and lenses of Jean Laurent (who took his photographs between 1860 and 1886), Mariano Moreno (1892-1925), Baltasar Cue (1891-1894), Aurelio de Colmenares y Orgaz (1894-1935), Pedro Ibarra (1858-1934), Eustasio Villanueva Gutiérrez (1913-1929), Otto Wunderlich (1914-1933), António Passaporte (1901–1983), Loty (1927-1936), Luis Escobar López (1920-1960) and Cristina García Rodero (1949).

The exhibition has been prepared by the Directorate-General for Cultural Heritage and Fine Arts of the Ministry of Culture and Sport of Spain and realized by the Slovene Ethnographic Museum upon the initiative and with the support of the Embassy of Spain in Slovenia as part of the cultural program of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The exhibition will be on view until 19 November 2023.
