Abstract

The National Museum (NM) is preparing several temporary exhibitions in all of its buildings, along with preparing new permanent exhibitions in the New and Historical Buildings. All parts of the National Museum are incorporated in the preparation of new exhibitions, i.e. the Historical Museum, Natural History Museum, Czech Museum of Music, Náprstek Museum and the National Museum Library. In 2017, these exhibition projects are: Light and Life, Masaryk as a Phenomenon, and Indians. In 2018, the National Museum will present the Czech-Slovak / Slovak-Czech exhibition, which will reflect the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia, together with selected moments of Czechoslovakian history and the relationship of these two nations. 2019 could bring the opening of the grand Egyptology exposition Sun Kings and also new Natural history expositions. The remaining permanent expositions should be opened in 2020. The exhibitions in this period will likely recall some important anniversaries (1620, 1920). In future years, the renovation of the Czech Museum of Music and Náprstek Museum will take place.

Abstract

The Collection of the Working Class Movement Museum results from a fusion of three Prague museums – the Klement Gottwald Museum, the V. I. Lenin Museum and the Julius Fučík Museum, which were taken over and completed by the Working Class Movement Museum in 1990. For the reason of securing the completeness of the Collection, the Working Class Movement Museum donated it to the National Museum in 2014. The Collection of hundreds of thousands of items consists of collectibles (e.g. works of visual art, posters, military objects, flags and standards, honours and documents of social events and also photographic and film materials), archive records (some personal possessions of Klement Gottwald, Antonín Zápotocký, Julius and Gusta Fučík, a collection of the written materials and of the small prints and archives of the original museums) and library items (publications from the 19th and 20th centuries focused on the history of the social movements and the processes). This paper presents both the origins and the content of the Collection and summarises the process of its change of location and deposition and also the creation of the new concept regarding the treatment of the museum funds.

Abstract

A growing body of research on fight books and historical European martial arts has appeared in academic circles over the last fifteen years. It has also broken through the doors of patrimonial institutions. From curiosities in exhibitions about knighthood, to dedicated temporary exhibitions about historical European martial arts, the fight books have received more and more attention from museum professionals. This article attempts to present an exhaustive list of fight books displayed in museum exhibitions over the last fifty years. It then proposes a critical view about how and why they were displayed from the perspective of the curators, based on a review of the exhibition catalogues.
