|Type of Article||Peer-reviewed|
The study based on the preparation of Přiběh Tibetu [The Story of Tibet] exhibition in the Naprstek Museum focuses on the de-contextualisation of Tibetan Buddhism objects in the museum setting. It deals with the stages of the decontextualisation process from the removing of the original material environment and social context to creation of new meanings in the museum. Namely it discusses aestheticisation and its relation to the art-gallery style exhibition.
