    From de_form (edited):

    The starting point of the Tigris a múzeumban (“tiger in a museum”) event series is the relationship between museum, book, and reading, viewed from different perspectives, and over time. Kenneth Hudson (1916–1999) was an English journalist and museologist, creator of the concept and method of industrial archeology. The phrase “A tiger in a museum is a tiger in a museum and not a tiger” draws attention to the difference between the everyday world and the museum world, which must be shown and understood, and not hidden. The tiger as a concept also refers to the role of the museum in the colonial and post-colonial approach, the early links between zoos and museums, the museum display of stuffed animals and the visually rich world of animal portrayal. Tigris a múzeumban is a joint series of the Museum of Ethnography’s MaDok program and Lumen Café, which launches an additional episode every 1.5 months.
