Charnier and Des Cars are both state curators who trained in France in art history and archaeology. But their scholarly paths had since diverged.
Aug 20, 2012–Ongoing
While Des Cars is an art historian specialising in French paintings of the end of the 19th century, Charnier specialises in archaeology and prehistory. With the anthropological approach, it is no longer a question of embracing the whole world in a classification system that is essentially European. The close tie between the universal museum and the Enlightenment is loosened and France and its Revolution are no longer major points of reference.
Now, something becomes universal not because it follows the dictates of human reason, as Kant affirms, but because it transcends cultural boundaries and is common to all mankind; universalism is what has always been—not what will be, such as the reign of political freedom and equality. When humans create works of art to distinguish themselves, as a community or as an individual, this artistic creation is full of similarities that reflect the universality of man through the ages and across the seas.
However, this approach does not mean plunging into a world of mere forms, severing the link between learning and the museum. On the contrary—and this is its great originality—it is quite unlike what you see at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, where, because they both have beautiful curves, Renoir nudes hang with medieval ironwork that in no way provided inspiration to the French painter.
It is not a stage for poetry, however beautiful, on which to dance with abandon. It is a museum for a time of doubt, a time of post-Cold War globalisation. But it will not drive reason from the museum. For more information, contact info theartnewspaper.
