Cultural diversity in a multimodal exhibition: Berlin, poor but multi-ethnic

Marta Faraoni

Studenteropgave: Speciale


In my research, I investigate the level of inclusion and exclusion of the minorities in the German Memory Culture (Rothberg and Yildiz, 2011). More specifically, I analysed an exhibition "Nineties in Berlin: multimedia exhibition" in order to understand how German Memory Culture is evolving and including more and more minorities' voices as also Jurgens (2013) and Rothberg and Yildiz (2011) underlined. With this aim, I applied some concepts from Museum Studies, some theories - Travelling Memory by Astrid Erll (2011), Multidirectional Memory by Michael Rothberg (2009), Mnemonic Resistance (Lorraine Ryan,2011), Prosthetic Memory by Alison Landsberg (2004) and Amy Sodaro (2018) and Cultural Aphasia (Stoler,2011) more specifically Memorability by Paul Bijl (2012). In addition, I employed MCDA and the semiotic method in order to process and analyse the data collected at the exhibition.
