Doors. Spatial and Symbolic Passageways of life.

Exhibition on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Slovene Ethnographic Museum

The exhibition stretches from the oldest known doors, keys and locks preserved in museum and private collections to the most up-to-date examples. Doors guide visitors to different parts of Slovenia to families of different professions and social origins. They tell numerous stories about those who made them, those who lived behind them, about the rise and fall of families, the development of homes, about what we understand by privacy, openness and closedness, and so on − festive stories and everyday stories.
