We arrived at the National Museum of Contemporary Art, located -oh surprise- in the old crazy palace of Ceausescu, renamed House of the People, then Palace of the Parliament. A stone monster, it covers 45,000 m2, has 1,100 rooms, 12 floors, and 4 basements. It sits on what used to be part of Bucharest’s historic city center, destroyed to make way for this monstrosity and resulting in the eviction of 50,000 people and the destruction of 7,000 houses and 300 churches.

Fire museum Rio / Who’s fault? by Leonardo de Souza Boy

September 27, 2018 |by Effy Tselikas | Comments Off on Fire museum Rio / Who’s fault? by Leonardo de Souza Boy | Cultural challenges, Culture, my life, Heritage, my future
At the beginning of September, Rio de Janeiro’s National Museum was destroyed not only by fire, but also by the freezing of public expenses that will last until 2027 in the area of education in Brazil (PEC 241). The largest collection in Latin America has been lost, a work of memory begun in exactly 200 years ago. The building had one of the oldest human skeletons ever found in Latin America, named Luiza. The destruction of the National Museum of Rio it’s a wake up call to governments which abandon its own history. Lack of funds and mismanagement turned the museum into ashes. That’s why is so important to discuss about cultural policies. Without past, we can lose track of the future.
