Christoph Bareither’s recent publication “Doing Emotion through Digital Media” discusses the taking of selfies at the “Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe” in Berlin. It engages in a discussion of practice and affordance theories as well as ethnographic approaches to the study of emotions. Published openly accessible in Ethnologia Europaea, you can read it here.
‘Refugees Welcome? Difference and Diversity in a Changing Germany’, the newly released book by Jan-Jonathan Bock and Sharon Macdonald, examines the responses and implications of what was widely seen as the most significant and contested social change since German reunification in 1990.

During this semester’s Museum Lab we are going to explore the peripheries of museums. We will be continuing our practice of joint exhibition visits and reflections, and invite people who wish to present parts of their research to a professional audience. The Museumslabor is open to researchers, practicioners and those working in the intersection of theory and practice. Feel free to join!
