ICOMAM Conference 2020

21-25 September
Toledo, Spain

 

‘The military historical legacy; mirror of the past, reflections for the future’

 

 

Being aware of the role that museums have acquired in the development of today's society through their decisive openness to the public, exchange and culturalenrichment in an increasingly interconnected and globalized world, which gives them a great capacity to extend their Conception far beyond their physical reality, military museums are a privileged scenario to be protagonists in this new era.

The military legacy places us before history, composed in turn of other stories in which, on a large number of occasions, the protagonists are common and, at the same time, each with their own perspective. By the very nature of these stories, this military heritage has the possibility of fulfilling a social mission through a new integrating dimension: how to make current the material culture of the past so that it reaches the man of the present, who challenges him and speaks to him of all and contribute something that is useful to know or improve our present and future

Conference Theme: The military historical legacy; mirror of the past, reflection for the future.
In line with the previous ICOM KYOTO 2019 topic (Museums as Cultural Hubs: The future of tradition) which dealt with the role of Museums contribution to societies in political, economic and social changes taking place around the world, vital for building a peaceful and sustainable future, the subject of the ICOMAM TOLEDO 2020 Conference wants to highlight the importance of Army Museum as a repository of the military legacy and a reference from the past to prepare for the (near) future.
 

Military Museums, in today's most globalized and intercultural society, are characterized by their openness to a diverse audience that seeks new knowledge and sensations that allow their development and personal enrichment. In this context of new approaches between museum and public, military museums constitute privileged entities that allow us to know not only the past but also reflect on the future by becoming centres of meeting and communication.
 

Throughout this conference we will discuss the different aspects that derive from the role of military museums as repositories of the military legacy in which to look at the past and serve as a basis for preparing our future. In this perspective we intend to develop the contributions of the speakers through the four panels that will be developed during the conference.

 We hope that all ICOMAM TOLEDO 2020 participants will actively engage in the subject through papers and discussions with a shared vision for the role of military museums in their role as a bridge between our historical legacy and our common future.

In 2020, ICOMAM will hold its annual conference in Toledo (Spain) from 21 to 25 September.  Lectures will take place on 22 and 23 September.

The general topic for ICOMAM TOLEDO 2020 conference is The military historical legacy; mirror of the past, reflection for the future.

2019 ICOM KYOTO´s topic was Museums as Cultural Hubs: The future of tradition, which dealt with the role of Museums contribution to societies in political, economic and social changes taking place around the world, vital for building a peaceful and sustainable future. In line with it, the subject of the ICOMAM TOLEDO 2020 Conference intends to highlight the importance of Military Museums as a repository of the military legacy and a reference from the past to prepare for the (near) future.

Military Museums, in today's most globalized and intercultural society, are characterized by their openness to a diverse audience that seeks new knowledge and sensations that allow their development and personal enrichment. In this context of new approaches between museums and public, military museums constitute privileged entities that allow us not only to know the past but also to reflect on the future by becoming centres of meeting and communication.

The Toledo Holy Cathedral is one of the most representative in Spain. Its construction began in 1227 during Archbishop Don Rodrigo Jiménez tenure. The site was situated over the foundations of the Visigoth Cathedral in the sixth century, which had been later used as a Mosque. Constructed in a Gothic style with a French influence, it is 120 m long by 60 m wide and contains 5 naves and aisles supported by 88 pillars and 72 vaults. The side aisles extend into the ambulatory around the Main Chapel, which terminates in a semicircular sanctuary in the apse. Its first architect was Master Martín, of French origin, who developed the original plans and began construction of the temple.

During the guided visit to the Church we will appreciate how magnificent and awe-inspiring this building is.
