Hanging Out (Puppets on Show)                       

 – a series of UNIMA discussions on exhibiting puppets as part of PQ talks in PQ exhibition hall (Výstaviště) 

How to exhibit the ephemeral art of theatre? Is it possible to communicate the complexity of a production through the presentation of physical artefacts only? Can puppets be exhibited as standalone art objects? These questions were discussed by experts of National Museum Prague, Munich Stadtmuseum, Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry Storrs, Central State Academic Puppet Theatre S. Obraztsov Moscow and Chrudim Puppetry Museum.

Speakers:  Lenka Šaldová (CZ), Mascha Erbelding (D), Nina Monova (RU), John Bell (USA), Simona Chalupová (CZ)    

Chair: Kateřina Lešková Dolenská, Martina Pecková Černá
