Monday, April 4, 2011 - 11:04am
Northeast Historic Film Summer Symposium

Die Wunderkammer (German for "the wonder-room" or "the miracle chamber") was merely one incarnation of the phenomenon of the "cabinet of curiosities" that first appeared in Europe in the 16th century. The cabinet of curiosities was based in the collection of objects, specimens and artifacts that inspired curiosity and wonder, and sometimes defied the terms classification. In many ways, the Cabinet of Curiosities was a precursor to the modern museum.
