Hidden Spaces of American Natural History in Early Modern Central Europe: Reconstruction of Memory and Experience Narrated by Things

Project description

Reconstructing an era through its collections

American naturalia, or samples of nature from the Western continent, have made their way into collections of Central Europe like the Jesuit museum in the Clementinum in Prague. Taken out of their original context and left unexamined in collections, several of these objects lend themselves to a multi-disciplined modern examination of Central Europe during a time of great cultural exchanges. The HISPANEMA project collaborates with Mexican, Spanish and US scientists to collect as much information about an object and its history as possible, supplemented by current scientific methods. The reconstruction of an object’s history and the recreation of the era it was collected in will be interactively presented to the public.
