BRULON, Bruno. Re-interpreting museum objects: From classification to becoming. Transinformação [online]. 2016, vol.28, n.1, pp.107-114. ISSN 2318-0889.

The aim of the study is to reflect on the traditional frames imposed to the museum objects and question their empirical value in contemporary times. The life of museum objects, both inside and outside formal institutions, produces different classificatory and informational frames. These frames sometimes stigmatize the objects binding them to the socially created categories and are progressively perceived as transposable by Contemporary Sciences. By means of a detailed bibliographical revision, the paper calls attention to a change in perception on musealia due to two different phenomena, which are: (1) the new meaning attributed to the artistic object by Contemporary Art, reorganizing discourse about these objects and the value invested in them; and (2) the ecomuseum enterprise, that place material objects on the background of museum discourse, prioritizing the musealization of human relationships with the social environment. In both cases, the classificatory categories that describe traditional museum objects were disturbed, leading to the concept of a new thought category that we propose to call the object-becoming.
