Changing Global Hierarchies of Value? Museums, artifacts, frames, and flows

International Conference arranged by the University of Copenhagen and The National Museum of Denmark,
20 - 22 August 2018.


Museums are said to classify the world; but the world is changing, and so are the museum worlds and the worlds of arts and artefacts. This conference explores how the world is imagined and classified through the presentation, interpretation and classification of artifacts; and how the global hierarchy of value (cf. Herzfeld 2004) might be changing in through these flows and circulations.
