The historical and ethnological museums of Catalonia start a campaign to collect materials to witness the passage of Covid-19 through our country

The collected material will become the heritage that the next generations will be able to link with the historical period that we are living

The Museum of the History of the Jews joins the campaign to collect documents and objects that bear witness to the Covid-19 through our country.
The objective is to preserve the testimonies of oral, written, audiovisual memory and objects that help to interpret the impact of the global pandemic in Catalonia.
This material fund can be diverse: PPE (gloves, masks, gowns and other sanitary material ...), "Closed by COVID19" posters, drawings or other materials produced individually or collectively to face the pandemic, household objects that reflect the life under quarantine and social distancing measures; new products created by companies and industry; works of art in public space; and items that represent community projects and initiatives. The supports can be: photographs, videos, voice messages, etc.
The donated material is going to become the cultural heritage that the next generations will be able to link with this crisis, which is first a health crisis, but also a social, economic and cultural crisis.
This is a campaign carried out in coordination with different museums of the networks of Museums of History and Monuments and of Museums of Ethnology of Catalonia. It will allow us, once the campaign is over, to pool the donated material, and evaluate the result to be able to make a cross-sectional reading and develop a common dissemination project.

On the site Memories of a pandemic we explain how you can participate in the campaign and what kind of items can be donated.
