POZAMATERIALNE I NIEOBECNE DZIEDZICTWO KULTURY
THE NON-MATERIAL AND ABSENT CULTURAL HERITAGE
Languages of publication
Heretofore conservation of cultural legacy monuments was concentrated predominantly on the protection of their material stratum. Non-material, extramaterial, and absent legacy was not guaranteed proper attention despite the fact that its co-existence was noticed. Consequently, many monuments and sites became deformed and even deprived of this type of heritage. Upon the threshold of the twenty first century, the ability to define and protect the cultural qualities of the non-material legacy, conceived as tradition, custom, cultural space, as well as extra-material legacy, in which sensitivity to colour, scent, sound, and texture of material is a factor that characterises both the object itself and historical space; it is decisive for the new quality of the protection of cultural legacy. In a wider range, analyses and protection are due to absent heritage, i.e. the sort which had been liquidated as a result of wars or for other reasons. The process of rendering this type of legacy indelible in social consciousness compels us to seek suitable forms of its expression and presentation. A complex approach in the protection of the material and extra-material aspects of cultural legacy will generate a new quality which, presumably, will speak to the contemporary recipient more comprehensively.
