Title: Výstavný potenciál kachlíc (na príklade banskobystrickej kachliarskej dielne)

(The Exhibition Potential of Stove Tiles (on the Example of the Tile Workshop in Banská Bystrica)) – pdf

Abstract: Contribution provides a picture of the current museum practice in the exhibition of historical tiles (from stoves). Tiles, which are the basic building element of a tiled stove, were not created as an autonomous artwork, but rather as a technical element with decoration. Today, finds of tiles are exhibited as separate artistically decorated objects in museums. Their decorative component makes them interesting from an art-historical, iconological, and historical point of view. However, when they are not part of a suitable exhibition, their context disappears. Historic tiles are often exhibited together with archaeological finds (even the decorated ones), with a minimal amount of information, and their potential from an art-historical point of view remains unused. They have a great potential in terms of the possibility of connecting art-historical and historical contexts.
