ANATOMISING THE MUSEUM: Contemporary Art & Museum Collections

Öppen Föreläsning

ANATOMISING THE MUSEUM brings together international artists, curators, researchers and museum professionals to probe at the effects of interventions and incisions in museum collections by contemporary artists. Welcome to Valand Academy, Thursday 26 November at 09:00-18:30.

Why are we encountering increased examples of museums engaging artists to work amidst or from their collections? How critical can artistic interventions in collections be when they most often occur at the invitation of the museum? What forms of critical curatorship are authored when museums engage artists to work amidst it practices? Are the procedures of the museum anatomised or consolidated through such projects?

Through convergence of art-criticality and heritage-criticality this seminar investigates interpretation and intervention, critical curating and quasi-curatorial methods as effects and methods of artistic intervention in and through museum's collections and their practices.
