Abstract [en]

Modern protection of movable and immovable heritage traces its European roots back to the beginning of the twentieth century. At this time many countries had imposed restrictions of some kind on the exports of domestic heritage objects. Legal restrictions found, and still claim to find, their legitimacy in the idea of national heritage and collective memory. In order to be defined and protected as heritage, an object needs to be intimately associated with shared values and memories. Some scholars have described the process of nationalizing heritage as the discourse of a social elite. The paper analyzes the discourse of legal protection of national heritage as one builiding on the idea of an "imagined community" that is constructed by using the past in different ways.
