A Documentation of the General Inventory in the Historical Museum Basel
The "Inventory" is a small exhibition about collecting and arranging things and knowledge in the museum. Here you will learn what a general inventory is and why the Historical Museum needs one.
What are the "Inventis" doing in the depots? From knight's helmets to women's strike posters - the general inventory reviews the approximately 300,000 objects in the museum's collection and makes us aware of the historical changes in the handling of museum property. How and why have exhibition and storage practices changed? The "inventory" presents underestimated areas of museum work.
