Art Historians
2014, 18min

The film is presenting two custodians/curators working at the Bruckenthal Museum in Sibiu, Romania.
During the film their enthusiastic, emotional and sincere engagement with the art world is evident, especially when they are talking about their favourite works of art.
The hopeful mediation of art takes place within the context of a utopian model of a museum. The genuine intellectual and sensory pleasure of being in the proximity of the chosen works of art becomes clearly apparent when they share their methods of observation and symbolic interpretation.
The Brukenthal National Museum was originally established as a private collection in 1761. From 1817 onwards the collection officially became a public museum. Significantly, the collection was established prior to the Enlightenment by Baron Samuel von Brukenthal (1721- 1803) while he was governor of Transylvania, Romania.
