The Museum of Methodology and the Criminalization of Culture, Rio c. 1938

A Public Lecture & Round Table Featuring Amy Buono
University of California, Santa Barbara

The Civil Police Museum of Rio de Janeiro, established within the Police Academy in 1912, went by many names: it was also known as the "Museum of Crime" and, tellingly the "Museum of Methodology". This lecture examines the museum, its collections, and the role of objects and visual culture in building a civic culture that linked collecting and seeing with police training. By 1938, the Museum became Brazil's earliest institutional collection of Afro-Brazilian heritage, one eventually under the domain of IPHAN. This talk explores the contradictory ways a particular collection within a collection, the inner "Museum of Black Magic", was understood and preserved in the period, highligting how police violence and museum preservation are intertwined.

Amy Buono is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of History of Art and Architecture at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and affiliated as a Researcher at the Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro. Her scholarship centers on materiality, memory, and museums, with a special focus on Brazil and the Atlantic world.
