The Power of Egyptian and Sudanese Collections

The theme of the CIPEG Annual Meeting 2022 is inspired by the main topic of the ICOM General Conference in Prague 2022 The Power of Museums and covers the well-known element of the CIPEG meetings, Museum Reports. We wish to exchange news from Egyptian and Sudanese collections, exhibitions and projects and this year the focus will be how we have coped and changed, perhaps even improved, the ways the collections are displayed and engaging with the public. Cultural institutions around the world have showed great creativity in managing the Pandemic situation.

The Power and Challenges of Historical and Archeological Museums to connect the communities

The World is changing. Nations and local communities are more concentrated on their own histories and museums as well. The past is past and material evidence of local communities is already part of “universal collections”. We will discuss how the collections belonging to different localities of the world, which are already in the “universal collections” have the potential to create cultural communication models today. Communication models that unite different societies will be presented with practices developed through joint exhibitions, educational programs, scientific events, publications and digital media use.

The dispersed ancient and modern African Collection & the Global Community

African collections reveal an extraordinary cultural impact, considered as the source of knowledge. Over the decades, thousands of African collections have been taken out of their homelands and displayed in museums around the world. The new national African states start to request the return of their heritage. The African collections looted during the periods of slavery, empire and colonialism are essentials for the African communities to revisit and re-engage with these important aspects of African history. This session will focus on the ancient and modern African collections by their provenance histories, their evolution on display and communication practices.
