Description:

For several years, Ion Valer Xenofontov, a lover of antiquities, an evocator of the past and commentator of the present, because – says Hegel in “Lectures on philosophy of history” – even if we write about the past from the perspective of the “eternal present” – proposes us a flower of curiosities about personalities, institutions, monasteries, villages, churches, cities, but also about certain aspects of social, economic realities, about the flora and fauna of our republic. It seems that the way of collecting such materials in a collection is random, subject to a whim of selection that does not meet a particular criterion. (Acad. Mihai CIMPOI)


Topics of interest:

  • anthropology
  • museology, museography and collections sciences
