Projecting the Museum: moving images in, and of, Scotland's national museum

Abstract

The century-long engagement of museums with the moving image is examined through a case study of its deployment by National Museums Scotland (inclusive of its predecessor organisations the Royal Scottish Museum and the Royal Museum of Scotland). The study engages the academic genres of film studies and museum studies to critically examine the use of moving images in, and by, the Museum over what might be termed the long twentieth century. In particular, it explores how developing technologies of film and video production and consumption created the institution’s ‘celluloid culture’ and its expression through material and virtual spaces of museum practice.
