Title
Beyond safeguarding measures, or a tale of strange bedfellows: improvisation as heritage
Abstrat
The paradoxical relationship with regard to the safeguarding and the preservation measures of heritage objects and practices has been discussed in the literature. The 1972 World Heritage Convention (WHC) has been criticized for its promotion of Western notions of heritage (Byrne 1991; Pocock 1997), whereas the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICHC) has recently been discussed as rehabilitating the earlier convention’s bias through its primarily non-Western composition (Aikawa 2004; Aikawa-Faure 2009). With regard to artefacts and monuments, such measures aspire to preserve and conserve the physicality of those objects so that the meanings and values attached to them, as well as their heritage affect, are accordingly reproduced over time.
