MUSEOEUROPE International Symposium in Maribor, Slovenia,
17-19 October 2019
Theme: TEXTILE, THE CULTURE OF CLOTHING AND FASHION
Organised by Regional Museum Maribor, Slovenia, MUSEOEUROPE International Symposium was conceived in 2012 as part of the project MARIBOR 2012, European Capital of Culture. MUSEOEUROPE 2019 focuses on TEXTILES, THE CULTURE OF CLOTHING AND FASHION.
The Regional Museum Maribor holds the country’s largest and pivotal collection relating to fashion and textiles from the 17th century to modern times. In 2019, the collection will be presented in a new open depot setup, which will also include items from a visiting european museum of the MUSEOEUROPE 2019 project.
For the MUSEOEUROPE 2019 International Symposium, we welcome research papers that reflect on the development, characteristics and functions of fashion and culture of clothing in different prehistorical and historical periods, on the role and significance of fashion, on design, development, textiles and technology, on the meaning of fashion as identity and its role in culture. It will be also interesting to hear about the experiences of fashion and textiles experts, dealing with the preservation of clothes and exhibitions.
