Rethinking the Punín Museum (Riobamba, Ecuador): From Monocultural to Multicultural Space

Juan Illicachi Guzñay, Pedro A. Carretero Poblete

Arqueol. Iberoam.

The current conception of museums, both in the city of Riobamba as well as in the Punín Museum (Riobamba, Ecuador), examined here, is based from the point of view of the social and identity exclusion. Our proposal makes a journey from the condition of power to the appropriation of “the other” cultural centers at the disposal of the communities, in which the academy should contribute much from the point of view of a multicultural and intercultural perspective in the South.

Museum; interculturalism; multiculturalism; pluriculturality; Riobamba; Ecuador.
