AD 409Project and Research in AdvertisingFall 2009Vahide Göktaş2006.13.02.007Thesis OutlineResearching the Displaying Differences of Kreuzberg Museum from Other Heimat(Local) Museums within the Scope of Migration and Social IdentityIntroduction
Museums collect and care for objects with scientific, artistic, or historicalimportance and make them available for public viewing through exhibits that may be permanent or temporary. Heimat museums concentrate on dealing with localhistory of a district where the museum is located.Berlin has a special position with its historical and cultural development throughits migration history.
Kreuzberg Museum is a heimat museum, and located in Berlin’smost multicultural neighbourhood in Kreuzberg. Although it is a heimat museum,Kreuzberg Museum has also a somewhat national mission. It operates as a migrationmuseum and documents different “wavesof migration into Kreuzberg (Turkish,Vietnamese, Bosnian) through time. This context will focus on finding how KreuzbergMuseum works and represents itself as a mirror of its society and/or Diasporas.
 
Background
There are several ways to start for a research about representing and exhibiting cultures,migration and related collective memory. Common starting points of these researches are;the way, which immigrants are written and perceived in national memories, controversiesthat are created by immigrants as outsiders, other migration exhibitions and writtenresources in related geographies.
Methadology
This research uses Kreuzberg Museum itself, other heimet museums in Kreuzberg andalso interviews with museum workers, museum director, people who live in Kreuzbergarea. Literature review will be based on museology, community museums, transnationalmigration, social identity and collective memory.
 
Researching the Displaying Differences of Kreuzberg Museum from Other Heimat(Local) Museums within the Scope of Migration and Social IdentityThesis Proposal
Kreuzberg is a district in Berlin, where a multicultural structure provides rather different aspects on its inhabitants. Before the wall came down, Kreuzberg was a ghettodistrict where immigrants lived. Today, Kreuzberg attracts artists, students, musicians,tourists, young people who enjoy the area’s old, colorful streets, ethnic shops, interestingatmosphere and nightlife at one side. On the other hand, Kreuzberg is considered asdangerous area by many people and that it is taken by foreigners. Conservative party triesto initiate propagandas to provoke voters in Kreuzberg to “make Germans feel that theyare in Germany.” However, most of German have left this area because it is increasingly populated by immigrants. With immigrants come poverty and an increased crime rate.Considerable numbers of German families refuse to send their children to schools wheremostly children of immigrant families attend.“Kreuzberg Museum” is located in the middle of Kreuzberg, a three-minute walk from the subway station “Kottbusser Tor”. Kreuzberg used to belong to West-Berlinwhen the city was divided. The district is ethnically very diverse. By far, the largest andthe most visible minority group were Turks, who are even a majority in some of itsneighbourhoods. Kreuzberg Museum is the third of its kind that concentrates on localhistory of migration.Cooperation between Kreuzberg Museum and Kreuzberg e.V is founded in 1991.
