DUARTE PEREZ, Danilo Ivar. Genesis of an era: museographic discourse and sociability in the Chilean press, 1845-1847. Culturales [online]. 2024, vol.12, e769.  Epub Mar 05, 2024. ISSN 2448-539X.

Lately, there has been a proliferation of studies on Chilean national exhibitions that, however, leave out the analysis of the genesis of this museographic practice as well as its discursive origins. This study aims to give an account of that appearance, of its materialization in the framework of national festivities and of the polemics that it caused. The above with a view to being a contribution to the historiography of Chilean museology. The study is situated in a germinal period in which the concern of the governing elite is to build a nation. The historical-critical method as a background to the analysis of primary sources such as the press, regulations, memoirs, etc. contributes to situate the beginning of an era and to determine the conditions of appearance of the national museographic discourse, as well as to individualize the members of a Collective Emitting Subjec.

Keywords : Discourse; Exhibitions; Museography; Press; Chile.
