El visitant ideal d'una col·lecció sentimental

Text

El visitant ideal d’una col•lecció sentimental (The perfect visitor to a sentimental collection) is a research project about the collection and the figure of Frederic Marès. In the Museu Frederic Marès, we can find 50,000 objects forming part of a series of ensembles, such as measuring apparatus, Iberian ex-votos, hair, and shell vases. These and many others make up the sentimental collection, which is the result of the apparent arbitrariness of the subject who decides what the collection should comprise and how it should be displayed. The complexity of this collection poses a confrontation of different methodological stances in order to get an answer to the following question: What might the ideal visitor of a sentimental collection’s attitude be?
