2017.06.16 | Mia Korsbæk

Date Tue 27 Jun
Time 13:30 15:30
Location Preben Hornungstuen at Stakladen

In these times of cascading social and ecological crisis, the question of how we imagine, describe, and perform our relationship with the world around us has acquired a new urgency. Taking shifting configurations of curation and catastrophe as its provocation, this afternoon seminar will bring together two leading scholar-practitioners to investigate the challenges and opportunities of museums and other exhibition spaces as catalysts for social change in the Anthropocene, this new geological epoch of our own making.

Venue: Preben Hornungstuen at Stakladen
