Museum in the field

Ethnographic Recollections on Film

The National Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw (PME) comes back to chosen locations that were the site of fieldwork from the late 60s through 80s carried out by Piotr Szacki and Krzysztof Chojnacki, employees of the National Ethnographic Museum.

The purpose of this return is to find the heros – or their descendants – from the photographs and films produced in that time, and to give them the opportunity to see the footage and photos they have never seen before. These screenings and exhibitions of photographs and pieces from the museum’s local collection take place in local community centres, common rooms, schools, libraries, or museums.

The objective of this ethnographic reminiscence is to give content archived in the museum back to the locals, and raising their sense of appreciation and pride for the cultural resources in their community. The project’s promotional activities include workshops and documenting the whole event in photographic form.

The current timetable of screenings along with the names of places that are participating in the project are shared regularly on our Facebook page.

Selected videos are available online on the dedicated Museum in the Field playlist on our YouTube channel. The project’s educational brochure can be downloaded here.
