The temporary exhibitions 1878-1972 at the Museum of Ethnography: a documentation (English)
This essay is about the documentation process at Bildarkivet (picture archive) at the Museum of Ethnography in Stockholm concerning their temporary exhibitions between the years 1878-1972. The purpose with this essay was to describe how the processes in documentation are being handled but also to point to the fact of the lack of literature written about this subject. I have studied 1569 photographs and put them in order by year. A difficult task since many of the photographs does not have any information about exhibitions or what year the photograph is taken. For my research I have used, among other, David Dean, Eilean Hooper-Greenhill and Igor Kopytoff to get a wide perspective about objects and collections. The result of my essay is that a documentation of photographs is an important task and very time consuming but important work.
