Exhibition 1-10 November at Berlin Science Week

How powerful are collections and archives? The exhibition “Power in/of Collections” delves into this inquiry, involving scholars from the Technical University, Humboldt University, the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, and the Pitt Rivers Museum at the University of Oxford.

The exhibition is part of the Forum of Berlin Science Week at Holzmarkt Berlin and is open from 3-7 pm 1-10 Nov, with presentations by some of the participating scholars on 5 November from 12-3 pm

My contribution to the exhibition:

Mapping the Social in 19th Century Art

How can we highlight social issues related to the works of art in public museums, bringing to the front what role these works have played in systems of power? Taking the Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery) in Berlin as a case study, we document attempts to collectively map the power in collections. All these examples come from seminars and workshops with students.
