Vineyard Pests and Diseases

On International Museum Day, which takes place on 18 May 2022, the last of 12 exhibitions in the reVITAlize project entitled “Vineyard Pests and Diseases” will open at 7 pm in the Koprivnica Gallery. The aim of the exhibition within the EU project reVITAlize is to acquaint visitors with vineyard pests and diseases, i.e., their control at the turn of the 19th and 20th century, and to compare today's procedures of grapevine protection with the procedures of the 19th and 20th centuries. In addition to exhibits such as the vineyard sprayer, which is generally the first association when thinking about vineyard care, the exhibition will be marked with the colour of chalcanthite, which represents the second sign of vineyard care and long-term effort of people to achieve higher yields. The exhibition will thus show another example of human attempt to tame nature, i.e., to compete with seemingly invisible threats such as lice, mites, spiders and crickets. The educational potential of the exhibition is precisely the possibility for the visitors who may not be winegrowers to learn how to recognize living things and natural phenomena. In the end, a viewpoint from the ecological aspect will be presented, which will question the necessity, ethics and sustainability of modern approaches to the protection of vines, which gives a reflective potential to this issue.
