Where do objects belong? The Schissler Globe in the Wardrobe
Moderação: Marta Lourenço | Diretora do Museu Nacional de História Natural e da Ciência, Universidade de Lisboa
This seminar aims at discussing the challenges in reconstructing spaces for the display and understanding of objects in the collections of heritage sites. Departing from the case of a 16th-century celestial globe made by Christoph Schissler in the National Palace of Sintra, the talk will discuss the existence of cabinets of curiosity in Portugal, as well as how the approach to early modern scientific objects can benefit from the history of consumption and luxury.
