Ariana – Musée suisse de la céramique et du verre: Exposition “Théières en goguette”

© Nicolas Lieber

Ariana

Jusqu’au 1er novembre 2020

Née au début du 16e siècle en Chine, la théière va connaître une diffusion fulgurante. Elle parvient en Europe par le biais des grandes Compagnies des Indes orientales, de puissantes entreprises commerciales. Plus qu’un simple objet utilitaire, aujourd’hui bien connu dans nos contrées, la théière représente un art de vivre et répond à des habitudes et des coutumes qui se propageront dans les couches sociales les plus élevées. Son usage s’imposera plus largement tout au long du 18e siècle.

Cette exposition, conçue par la médiation culturelle, fait aussi appel à vos sens. Outre la vue, l’odorat rarement convié dans les musées est sollicité, sans compter quelques activités autour du goût. La diversité des styles, des décors ou des éléments ajoutés – prises, goulots ou anses – révèlent une mode en perpétuelle évolution.

Knowledge and Learning Commons: Negotiating in a Multilateral World

Negotiating in a Multilateral World. The potential and challenges of more inclusive negotiations

Tuesday 8 September 2020, from 12 p.m to 1.30 p.m

As Geneva celebrates a centenary of multilateralism since the establishment of the League of Nations and the United Nations turns 75 amidst the COVID-19 outbreak and its global impact, this session aims to delve into negotiation, the role of negotiators in multilateralism, and the potential for building more inclusive negotiations.
Mr. Jerome Bellion-Jourdan, currently working collaboratively to explore the potential for a new initiative on global negotiations, will be joined by Ambassador Yvette Stevens and Mr. Victor do Prado to interact with participants to consider the following issues and more: how can negotiators find a collaborative approach to an issue? How can negotiators overcome deadlocks?
How can we handle the real or perceived asymmetry of power? In largely State-driven multilateral negotiations, what is the role of other stakeholders?
Amid calls for a more inclusive multilateralism, the session will explore the potential and the challenges to experiment with new formats of negotiations.

The League of Nations Essentials – The Real Story of the 1st Global Multilateral Organization

WEDNESDAY 16 SEPTEMBER 2020, FROM 12 P.M. TO 1 P.M

Full 100 years after its establishment in Geneva, the League of  Nations deserves its full story told! Based on research done in recent years, we will dispel some traditional  myths  and  misconceptions  about  the  League  of   Nations.  We  will  share the real story of  the League as a first experiment in multilateralism, its many successes and legacies, and why it ultimately failed in its core mission to preserve  world  peace.  You  will  learn  of   the  groundwork  the  League  laid  for  the United Nations, some of  its key achievements that still shape the world and make it a better place, and what parts of  the League survive to this day. And we will tell you how to access the knowledge and resources about the League – both primary and secondary sources – right here at the UN Library & Archives Geneva. More details to come.
