The Borderline as a Museological Stucture

Bo Lönnqvist discusses the cultural borderlines which are applied in museum classifications and presentations. Museums tend to establish and confirm a world order through the distinctions they make in ordering the collected objects and arranging them in specific buildings, rooms and showcases. Thus the structuring can be regarded as a mirror of human intentions and thinking. The paper elucidates some of the cultural symmetries created by the museum.
