RECONSTRUCTION OF COMMON HISTORY THROUGH OBJECTS VIRTUAL COMMUNITY MUSEUMS. MEXICAN EXPERIENCE

Museums are commonly seen as symbolic spaces were objects and Art narrate and represent important moments of human history. From this perspective, museums found valuable communicative oportunities in digital contexts that overcome the barriers of physical spaces, and open vivential opportunities that enable communities reconstruct their history througth collected objects, and alternative narrative forms told by the settlers themselves. In countries were cultural infrastructure is difficult to access with the presence of museums established in isolated and remote areas, creating virtualized community museums is a media and communication option that is worth studying. This work presents the experience of creating and digitizating of a community museum in the Mexican community of Bravo, located in the State of Querétaro. It is a communicative and historical reflection on the possibilities that new technologies offer to build virtually symbolic spaces that recover the local stories of small regions. This potentiality could join the virtual spaces of major museums, which, being adept at handling intangible heritage and linkages, could utilize the experiences presented below.

The core component of this social communication exercise is narrative, which serve as axes that create identity and meaning. This work methodology produced a space of intergenerational communication and interaction, consisting of the key notions were identity, narrative, symbolic representation, symbolic value, 3D animation, and social transformation of social imaginaries. This article analyzes the methodology used, the registry model, and the operation of a community museum created with and for the inhabitants of a community.

Narrated stories have always constituted an important resource for human groups and society as a whole; they bring cohesion to the way things ought to be and to individual and collective actions that give meaning to life on a day-to-day basis.

Storytelling enables one to locate realities within space and time, reconsider values, reinterpret facts, and construct collective knowledge that determines a human group’s destination or journey. Recording important facts, social practices or the particular use of objects and spaces is an important symbolic tool that creates meaning, identity, and belonging, whether among companies, families, communities or large cities. Hence, the importance of establishing projects that reclaim these meanings.
