Example text

The central purpose of object preservation in museums, however, is being challenged by source communities who see the purpose of the objects to be the preservation of the specific cultures themselves rather than their material remains. This may involve conceiving objects in different ways, as living entities, some of which retain spiritual power sufficient to endanger museum workers and visitors alike (Nicks 2003, p. 21). The boundaries around conservation activities have, therefore, become increasingly permeable and are required to form and dissolve in relation to the specific requirements of the conservation event (Edmonds & Wild 2000, p.

Museums and other heritage institutions do not exist in isolation from society; they evolve as participants in, and in response to, social transformations. They do not merely exist within a context but are also themselves creating cultural contexts (Macdonald 1996, p. 8). In response to broader social and political forces of the 20th century, the museum as an institution has been changing from an inward-looking organisation centred on research about collections to an outwardlooking organisation with a greater focus on the needs of museum visitors and their communities (Pye 2001, Joyce 2002, p.

A flexible approach to the application of conservation principles is therefore required so that previously submerged views of care and value can become evident in the conserved object. The aim of this process is to acknowledge the existence of alternative conceptualisations of cultural heritage (such as the recent focus on intangible heritage) to that commonly associated with Western ideas and policies. This enables the development of strategies in conservation that do not threaten the existence of local heritage practices of preservation and transmission (Rowlands & de Jong 2007).
