Supported by Goethe Institut in Minsk.

The topic of the issue is a Museum as a social project. As Stephan Wackwitz, a Head of Goethe Institut in Tbilisi, said in his interview, we should also understand a museum as a self-portrait of the society, a space for understanding as well as for forming the identity of the nation and for researching the local context.

This point of view was a start for pARTisan to think about a phenomenon of Belarusian museum, which still has a strong influence of the Soviet ideology.



Thus, Alaksiei Bratačkin (Alexey Bratochkin), analyzing a new Museum of the Great Patriotic War in Minsk, states that until now the re-thinking of the Soviet epoch isn’t happened in Belarus and the Great Patriotic War remains an instrument of modern Belarusian authority’s ideology. A museum of the Soviet in Belarus is the main question of another discussion among Alaksiei Bratačkin, Volha Ramanava and Irina Ramanava. Volha Bubič in the next article describes the situation of Trascianiec Memorial construction in Minsk (one of the bigest Nazi camp during II War) and asks why until now the Government works with this issue so slowly and mostly keeps silence. Establishing the fact of ruin of Belarusian museums, Artur Klinaŭ proposes an artistic project of museums’ revival in Belarus (The SunCity of Dream Museum, Sots art museum, Chaim Soutine museum and other). Except of local questions (Contemporary art virtual museum in Belarus, art project Warwitness’ Archive etc.), the issue turns to the experience of neighbouring countries (Ukraine, Georgia, Germany) comparing the different ways of museum development.
