Current situation and perspectives of research and presentation of intangible cultural heritage phenomena in the context of Banská Bystrica region
Languages of publication
The study deals with the current state of research of intangible cultural heritage phenomena in the context of the Banská Bystrica region, and highlights the rising number of recently restored and publicly presented socio-cultural phenomena of traditional culture. We examine two closely related areas that exemplify the issues at hand: the current state of traditional folk culture in its geographical context (i.e. the Banská Bystrica region) and the institutional structure of the regional government. They also constitute the basic determining factors that define not only the potential contents of the phenomena and processes of traditional culture as a basis for presentations, but also their form. They are not identical all throughout Slovak regions; some regions preserve cultural traditions to a larger extent, others do so to a lesser extent; in some regions, the concentration of monuments is higher and the same is true of museums, particularly museums of natural sciences. An overview of regular and recent activities taking place in the region of Banská Bystrica provides answers to questions concerning quantity and diversity of folk culture and highlights positive and negative aspects of these types of presenting cultural heritage phenomena.
