How objects appear in a museum collection, are important questions to raise for museum workers.
We might see them through the distanced records of the registrations and catalogues, or we might meet them with our senses and see them as material things. We might even see them primarily as representations for a particular kind of object - something that we pick up for an exhibition. This may be more or less deliberate and reflective. Different approaches to an object relate to different knowledge systems, and this gives analytical implications. This is exemplified in this article by using an item from the Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum's collection, a uniform jacket.
