Lena Stina’s research project addresses large-scale reconstruction processes, taking place at national museums throughout Europe. The research project deals with the history of architectural transformation within four case studies, and the continuously expanding activities and territories of these institutions. The research project discusses these processes from the perspective of construction materials and their histories, material destruction and preservation, as well as through questions of labour and production necessary for enabling change.
