Found object pictorial document

Pictorial documents of family members making music are often in private hands. Usually, this kind of photograph is situational. For research and publication purposes, these are usually made available by way of reproduction. The research centre owns an extensive collection of photo, slide and film reproductions that were produced during various research projects, especially in the 1980s. Musical activities within families and clubs, even during times of military service and war, can be documented as can changes in the composition of the people in the musical ensembles. Clothing and occasions of music-making provide information about socio-cultural backgrounds.

>> This collection is part of the collection "Pictorial documents of Traditional and Popular Dance and Light Music" of the Forschungsstelle für fränkische Volksmusik (Research Centre for Franconian Folk Music).
