The Political Banner, a Material Memory of the Public Space A Contribution to the Museum’s Collecting of the Present

Abstract

The paper deals with the documentation of the current political protests and demonstrations in the context of the museum’s work and the material culture. It focuses on the documentation of the political banners used in demonstrations and the preservation of the selected banners as part of a museum collection. It further outlines the possibilities of using a political banner as a source of information on political protests, which take place in the physical public space: more specifically, information on the statements, claims and attitudes of the demonstrators; the iconography of the protest; the identity of the demonstrators as well as the links between them and their hierarchy.
