Musee Du Quai Branly, Paris Reviews
This review relates specifically to the Ghosts of Asia temporary exhibit - which was interesting, inventive, and well-presented. The exhibit combines film clips, statues, scrolls, and other artifacts to cover the history of ghosts in Asian cultures all the way from their early origins to their current representations in film and manga. There are a lot of very inventive film exhibits - including eerie projections of female ghosts culminating in a 360-degree projection of the ghosts from The Ring. While the exhibits are interesting and generally accessible, translations into other languages are sparse, so if you can’t read French you will want to pick up an audio guide.
Very interesting pieces from all around the world. One of the more interesting museums we’ve visited. English translation on most pieces. We went later in the evening and it was nice and quiet.
A great museum in Paris. The special exhibition of racism in children's literature was amazing. Roof top terrace has a great view. Dropping one star because the other collections contained bits of the exact racism that the special exhibition was criticizing. Whoops!
The most amazing and surreal museum I've ever been to in my life. The design is breathtaking - projects you to a different universe where you feel like an ancient 'explorer' meeting indigenous people from around the world. The displays such as the masks and artifacts pop up at you as if you are encountering the tribes for the first time - giving a true visceral feeling of what it may be like during pre-colonial contact times. The use of light and interactive exhibits project you into their world, to make you feel part of all these different cultures. You are not simply just observing them, but you are part of them. All of the artifacts are from the colonial times (most from former French colonies) , and the lack of explanations leaves the visitor to come up with his/own conclusions. The art exhibition on the top floor sums the different possible interpretations of the museum and its messages. There are 3 different perspectives that one could take when meeting a different culture: 1. Me vs them - this is established in the roots of racism and colonialism, how one race is better than the other. 2. Observing - keeping a distance but watching them like animals in a zoo. There is no judgement but also no connection. And lastly... 3. Integration and acceptance - being adopted into the culture and respecting the differences for what they are, and understanding that everyone around the world are really not that different after all.
Museum featuring Indian cultures from around the world. Very pretty and interesting! Found it interesting that they only had one outfit to represent North American Indians.
