The Communal, the Museum and the End of the Contemporary: Decolonial Summer School

Tuesday, June 23, 2020 - 9:45am

This summer school course will focus on the communal and modern/colonial histories, looking in particular at the role of museums and other cultural institutions and their (potential) impact on society. The school will analyse the conceptual foundation of “modern” cultural institutions questioning the idea of “modernity’ through a decolonial perspective. We will explore the closing of Western modernity through the end of the contemporary and the decolonial opening toward the communal.
