ХI EDITION PLOVDIV 2021
SUBJECT: THE MUSEUM
In Antiquity, the Musaeum was the Temple of the Muses – patrons of the arts. Since the very beginning of the creation of the museum, it became a center of the cultural and social life of the community, a place where different scientific researches and discoveries were presented. For more than two millennia, the museums have kept the knowledge and traditions, the tangible and intangible treasures, they educate and they are desirable destinations for cultural tourism…
The museums' purpose is to preserve the cultural and historical heritage and successfully pass it forward. They manage to provide something for every taste – for some people, it is a source of knowledge; for others, it is a place for reflection and entertainment or a journey back in time. Over the years, they have become organizations that build up their universal character and language intelligible to everyone – no matter the sex, race, or religion. The museum is a specific communication tool for people from different epochs removing the barriers between them, shortening the distances, breaking and eradicating the stereotypes.
How do caricaturists “see” the museum? Could this heritage treasury be “described” and “characterized” with pencil, pen, or ink? We are looking forward to your answers.
