"Maritime heritage tells us a lot about the opportunities and challenges of our present. We tell these stories by making maritime research visible in exhibitions and by giving our objects a voice."

Marleen von Bargen, PhD, Scientific curator

 

About the person

Dr. Marleen von Bargen is a historian and has been working as a scientific curator at the German Maritime Museum (DSM), Leibniz Institute for Maritime History in Bremerhaven since 2017. Before that, she completed a scientific traineeship at the DSM. Since 2015 she has been involved in many exhibition and transfer projects. She is currently working on the implementation of the new permanent exhibitions in the DSM.

Her research interests are on political cultural history and the maritime history of the 19th and early 20th centuries (especially passenger shipping) as well as the history of sea rescue. Since her work is related to science, collection and transfer Marleen von Bargen works interdepartmentally and participates also in other projects. Another focus of her work is the implementation of accessibility.

 

Current projects

  • Permanent exhibition in the extension building of the DSM (Bangert-Building)
  • Exhibition concepts and design for the Scharoun-Building (together with Christoph Geiger and Deike Reddig)
  • "Cultural Participation in the Museum - the Potential of Digitalisation" (DSM as Social Living Lab). A cooperation with the Ostfalia University, Wolfenbüttel and the Lebenshilfe Bremerhaven (part of the Leibniz ScienceCampus „Postdigital Participation“)
