Her research attempts to interpret the material culture through the comprehension of the history and the analysis of industrial design on one hand and the history of museum theories on the other. It investigates and designates the vicissitudes of the industrial everyday object’s identity as a result of its re-acquiring of meaning in an exhibitionary situation and the meaning of this procedure for this object’s contribution in the formation of identities of social subjects. The primary question therefore that her research attempts to answer is whether and to what extent the industrial everyday object plays a determinant role in the formation of mainstream ideology and identity of social subjects in the course of the history of civilization, participating in the major narratives of modernity and the individual narratives of post modernity.
