Tony Bennett, who works on museum theories, defines 19th century museum as an “exhibitionary complex”. 2  This definition frames the museum as the art institution that represents the complex relationship of power and reality. Specifically, the theories of display technologies and narratives focuses on the objects to reveal the dynamics of to be seen and unseen, or the contextualization of their visibility within the museum complex, as a reflection of this relationship.

This seminar is about the role of the museum, as an exhibitionary complex, in the relationship of power and reality. The discussion will focus on “art object in the museum”. The effect of the role of the museum as an exhibitionary complex on the art object is an important question. But also, the ways that art objects challenge and transform the power of museum, supposedly built on reality, are also worth to discuss. Hence, from a historical perspective, the seminar will ask whether 21st museum is still an exhibitionary complex? Or the new formations of art radically challenge the museum? A dialog about the museum, hopefully will contribute to an understanding about curatorial practices of today’s contemporary art world.
